About the event

This contemporary ballet class is an opportunity for dancers to explore ballet to carve out space in the body and create a home there for self-expression and storytelling. Here, we will discover tools to help strengthen the body for the support of our exploration of the spine, choreography and improv.

Lesson plan: Class will begin with the dancers bringing awareness to their breath and energetic spine. I will guide the dancers as they explore arch, curls, contractions, spirals and lateral side bends. All movements that will help strengthen, stretch and mobilize core muscles and support us as we investigate the port de bras (carriage of the arms) through choreography and improv.

Zoom Link: In your confirmation email, you will receive a Zoom Link, Meeting ID and passcode.

You will also receive a reminder email with the same information, 1 hour before the event.
