Class Descriptions

Contemporary Jazz

My Classes all consists of a communal introduction to the space and fellow dancers in the room, in order to fully and comprehensively connect to the physical and mental intention of the class and set goals for the duration of the time. This is achieved through communal breath, set contact improv, and various GaGa and Yoga based exercises to create a heightened awareness of the senses, mind and body. Dancers are taken through a series of technical warmups ranging from Ballet with variations of Jazz and Funk.

The class is then taken across the floor examining the space through movement investigation, from tasks and combinations that are designed to push the students, yet remain consistent with their initial goals in class. The across the floor introduces the movement vocabulary, that with be culminated at the end of class in the final combination.

Acrobatics meet fluidity and control within my practice in the classroom. I intend to combine fluidity and strength within my movement, which makes for a unique combination when exploring musicality and dynamics. My Ideal goal is to assist the dancers become more aware of their body's potential, while conveying thought and emotion effectively through their movement. The class is a learning experience for me as well, it is just as important to me to find out how to enrich the voice of which the dancer is communicating, than to just simply see my movement mirrored. I truly rather watch the dancers' s intention perfumed in the realm of my movement quality.
