This session will combine the grace of modern with the speed and fluidity and hip-hop and house dance. Phrases will involve every part of the body—whether in the air or on the ground. The class focuses on how to move from high to low to high again, and how to rediscover “the down”—corporally through footwork and spatially through floorwork. By shifting the focus from internal dialogue to creating movement that, in its own physicality, can tell a story by itself, the class will delve deeper into the cathartic ability of sweat and exhaustion, while offering a new and active method of expression.
