This advanced intermediate course is designed for students who have already taken intermediate level technique and are ready to tackle more complex forms. The class will begin with a warm up that involves discovering movement within our joints and mobilizing our physical structures. Using simple partnering exercises, we will explore shifts of weight, alignment and momentum. We will then put these newly found tools to use in executing large, intricate moving phrases. Throughout the term, we will focus on different ways of initiating movement and modulating the use of energy in our dancing.
