Contemporary at Ebb & Flow

A 4-part Contemporary class series
7/8 • 7/15 • 7/22 • 7/29
.
Participants will be given the freedom to examine and reflect upon their relationship with movement, beginning with a brief warm up featuring improvisational elements. The class will then dive into longer phrases of movement as participants continue to build an awareness of themselves; their weight, the space, and the bodies moving with us, which are key components of Megan's ideologies as an instructor.
.
With dance constantly evolving, class and choreography both explore the history and techniques of contemporary dance forms while staying current with a practice of personal investigation and a willingness to experiment.
.
Registration is now open, $12/drop-in or $40/all four classes.
