This course introduces students to basic practices and principles of modern dance. Students explore concepts of alignment and work to develop strength, flexibility, coordination, and articulation. The class begins with exercises that warm up the torso, stretch the legs, and prepare the body for standing work. The standing work emphasizes coordination of full body movement with the use of breath. The class progresses across the floor using traveling phrases to build movement vocabulary. Open to all students.
