These classes approach dance technique functionally, focusing on cleaning fundamental coordinations and attaining movement facility and ease through exercises that balance control and propulsion with release and momentum. Anatomical information about hard and soft structures inform the practice. The class builds from a gentle, introspective warm-up to challenging phrasework demanding fierce athleticism and refined artistry.
