Contact Improvisation: Flight of the Dancer
In this class we will embody concepts of proper alignment and practice our perception of tone and release. We will discover how these skills open the ease in our lifting and lightness in our flying. This class is super fun and will offer practical skills to enjoy in your dancing body!
Saturday, 10am-12:00pm, Art Gallery Stage
