Contemporary Ballet Daytime!

Class focuses on the deconstruction of movement into accessible technical basics that movers from varied backgrounds can understand. We work from the foundations of William Forsythe’s Improvisation Technologies to remove artificial affectations leaving the core technique and pure physical architecture of the body. The ultimate goal of this study is to learn the functionality of form and how to carry this knowledge into application through phrase work. This is a practical, technical class that uses the tools of improvisation, weight, shape, space, rhythm and time. Participants will see results that can easily apply to other forms of dance. For all levels.

ShaGa

ShaGa is a guided movement practice based on the philosophy that what we do in the studio can affect our lives outside of it and that inhabiting our bodies allows us to more fully inhabit the world we live in. It is designed for all people of all abilities who want to connect to their passion to move and discover in a welcoming, accepting  atmosphere. Evocative ideas and imagery create an improvisational playground that enhances increased sensitivity to our bodies while going beyond familiar limits and expanding our movement potential. As we allow our innate, inner rhythms, we experience freedom inside our movement and inside our minds while connecting our bodies to our imaginations. The practice opens us up to more pleasure and the capacity to experience movement as a dynamic, healing force of vitality.
