CONTENT // This class welcomes the personal practice of each dancer.
We will explore a variety of ways to develop our floor-focused movement intelligence.
We will find ways to integrate floor movements into our pre-established individual practices.
We will focus on further exposing our own personal style and developing floor movements and pathways that we can confidently call our own.
Freestyle is a large part of this workshop. We will explore movement execution with music and address how music creates variety in our movement’s expression.
Vic will offer lessons in strength training, efficiency-in-action, transition options, level changes, and upside downs. Each student’s specific questions and reflections are very welcome.
On Wednesday we will be welcoming guest teacher Sovann aka Promo to lead the class.
