Movement Practice: Advanced Dance Technique (DAN4344.01)

Elena Demyanenko

We will be inventing the new body every day by expanding the receptivity to detail, connections, logic and its potential; working from the place of ease and space, especially when applying vigorĀ and attack; and working from the intelligence of the bones, the guts, and the skin.

This advanced movement class will develop from simple skeletal mobility sequences to expansive movement forms. The warm-up will examine the joints and how their range of motion relates to alignment, readiness to move, and articulation. These principles will then become the foundation for traveling sequences and longer movement phrases. Distinguishing between tempo, rhythm, and phrasing will also be a priority. Our goal will be to find a way of working that makes technique central to dancing and making.
