NEW CUNNINGHAM TECHNIQUE CLASS with VICKI FINLAYSON
FRIDAYS 4:30-6:00 p.m. starting JULY 12
Starts this Friday!
This class is geared towards students who are at an intermediate level or higher in either ballet or modern technique. Students will explore the training that Merce Cunningham developed to promote the range of articulation of the dancer’s body and somatic imagination. Students will learn combinations that will be woven together to build a dance that will coexist with the music but not be dependent on it.

Klein Technique™ is a process through which the body is analyzed and understood to improve and further movement potential. It is a movement education and re-education that can be an underpinning for all movement genres, improvisations, athletics, and for the general health of the body in everyday movement. This workshop will introduce a Klein Technique™ Stretch and Placement class and will progress towards movement phrases that integrate concepts of Klein Technique™ into bigger dancing.
Stephanie Miracle is an independent choreographer and teaching artist with one foot in Europe and the other on West Coast. She holds a MFA in Dance 2014 from the University of Maryland and a BA in Dance from Belhaven University 2004. A 2014/15 German Fulbright Fellow in the Performing Arts, Stephanie has focused her research on the embodied practice of tanztheater. She became a certified teacher of Klein Technique™ in 2017. Her teaching practice explores the liveliness of space and the possibilities of a precision and chaos in the body.
