I am teaching a master class at the OhioDance Festival on April 24 from 3:00-4:15pm. This event is open to festival attendees only. More information.
Class description: This advanced contemporary class examines the functional and expressive potential of the body by dancing along a spectrum of movement, from the everyday to the virtuosic, the irreverent to the vital. Traditional technique class elements, like weight shifts, swings, and tendus, emphasize a responsive resilience through the pelvis, spine, and limbs, articulate weight shifts, and an awareness of the body’s architecture. Solo and group improvisational structures weave between set exercises to investigate balance, momentum, directional changes, focus, and intention.
