Contemporary with Juilliard Graduate, Melissa Wynn
This contemporary modern dance workshop focuses on moving dynamically through space while working with "strength from within, ease from without." Movement phrases and philosophy explores moving from internal to external in a "release technique" approach -- while always focused on clarity of intention and movement initiation. Students are charged with the challenge of utilizing impulse specificity with energetic physicality and to experiment with off-balance and/or non-logical movement phrases. Class starts Saturday, 9/12 at 12:45 pm.
Here's the holiday closing schedule during our 2015-2016 dance year.
