Contemporary Dance with Emy

The class focuses on the dancer’s relationship with the floor (the floor as partner); practices spiraling and serpentine movements in order to move with more fluidity; involves breathing dynamics and the release of energy throughout the body as a motor of movement. Movement sequences build up during the entire class in order to explore personal anatomical alignment and awareness, integrate improvisation with natural movement, work with their honest weight and explore range of motion.

Foam Roller

If you’ve ever wondered what those long, styrofoam cylinders are hanging around the gym, this class is for you. If you incorporate foam rolling as a regular part of your wellness regimen, this class is also for you! We will explore the many ways in which you can use foam rolling as an affordable alternative to massage. We will use the foam roller as a form of myofascial release, which both improves flexibility and range of motion, and reduces muscle soreness and stress. We will also use the foam roller as an element that targets stability, core strength and overall injury prevention. Through a combination of Pilates, PT-based exercises and functional training, this workshop will demystify the foam roller so that you can incorporate it into your own individual practice.

Vogue

This sassy, super fierce, fun workshop will go over all the 5 basic Elements of Vogue (hand performance, floor performance, catwalk, duck walk, and dips & spins). Designed to sharpen performance quality, core strength, musicality, and proper alignment, this workshop is friendly enough for beginners but challenging enough for advanced dancers. Heels are optional; if you choose to wear them, your heels should provide ankle support and should NOT be over 4 inches, unless they are sensible platforms. Thicker heels may be better for extra stability. Comfort comes first!
