Modern (Grace Nicklos)

This class will dive into the body’s natural pathways and rhythms. We will move through release as well as float, finding our connection to ground and space. Striving to find our movements' true weight with phrase work that will challenge our mind and body to connect and flux.

Modern Lifts & Weight Sharing (Rebecca Leuszler & Irene Honora)

This class will focus on the foundation of lifts and weight sharing used in Modern Dance and Contact Improvisation. Through the teachings of balancing, negotiating, and shifting weight, participants will create lifts in various group settings and explore non-traditional negotiation patterns.

Yoga (Elyse Morckel)

Yoga builds strength, stamina, and flexibility. Class will incorporate Vinyasa (flowing movement sequences) with slow, sustained stretches, refinement of alignment in held poses, as well as breath awareness and mental focus.

Improvisation (Megan Gargano)

Improvisation is an exploration of choreographic concepts used to develop unique and innovative movement vocabularies in real-time. From this base, dancers will develop movement material into spontaneous, performable dances through improvisational structures and scores.
