Friday: 10am, The DanceXchange
A dynamic and uplifting open level contemporary class designed to stimulate your body and mind. This class explores release-based techniques for an accessible, full-bodied movement experience. Dancers are encouraged to work openly in the space, exploring high-energy phrases that refine technique, and play with creativity. Dancers will be encouraged to travel, jump, roll, and control the body in flight, as well as move in contrast with slower-paced, lyrical movement phrases. This class also draws on basic yoga postures and pilates sequences to encourage moving with the breath, and the development of strength and stamina.
Tuesdays 7.30pm, The DanceXchange (beginners)
Thursdays 8.30pm, The Dance Workshop (social class, improver level up)
