Class info: Join us for an innovative Contemporary Dance class with Stephanie Bastos that will allow you to discover your potential as a mover and art maker! Stephanie's unique dance class will challenge and inspire you to create a sacred space to be included in the movement experience. Expect meditation, warm-up, skill-build and playfulness through improvisation and choreography rooted in Contemporary & Brazilian dance techniques and African polyrhythms. This movement experience is designed for everyone! Stephanie believes in meeting their students where they are at and will focus on creating a fun and collaborative experience by bringing dance technique, choreography and musicality into her class. The dance class aims to bring your focus internally and support your body so that you can move forward in your day with a fresh mind, spirit and energy. The class will start and end with a meditation. Stephanie will also use the brain dance, which is a technique and concept created by a dancer and scientist that composes eight developmental movement patterns human beings are programmed to move through from 0-12 months that wire the central nervous system.
