My technical classes are based on the Limon and Release techniques. I like to mix my classes using both techniques – the Release style allows more freedom of movement while Limon brings more discipline around shape and form. In my opinion, Release is more natural and free and helps me to see the potential of dancers in terms of their movement and dance. Limon gives dancers a more powerful body structure
Improvisation & Contact Classes:
My improvisation classes help students to discover the space around them and recreate an imaginary world. The students will be guided to play and use different qualities and parts of the body they maybe are not used to working with. My aim is to get the students to reach into their creativity and develop their own vocabulary as a dancer.
With contact, students will learn how to use body language, exploring and listening to the body of their partner. We will build kinesthetic skills and new perceptual awareness through moving in contact with others. This class is great for people wanting physical exploration, embodied philosophy, fitness, play, meditation, and creativity. We will learn to access different body mind states internally and externally in space around us. Tuning our bodies to the forces of gravity and momentum - we let go of excess tension to find ease and vitality.
We will play with various improvisation structures, including elements of the Underscore, to build attunement. Our explorations will bring subtlety, fullness, and flight to our dancing. Classes consist of warm-up, exercises, movement puzzles, and jamming!
