FRIDAYS 4:30-6:00 p.m.

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.
