Modern Dance Technique
Technique classes include the momentum and spacial awareness of release technique as well as a focus on power and strength. It begins with a thorough anatomical warm-up, continues with phrases across the floor to allow for expansive movement and culminates in a phrase of intricate gestures combined with inversions and grandiose movements. These classes are fast paced and designed to challenge students and expand the realm of possibilities.

Using the techniques of the InterPlay system, improvisation classes are multidisciplinary, combining movement, voice and storytelling with a focus on ensemble performance.
