This is a movement practice course that is grounded in the aesthetic principles of historic 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. Prerequisite: a previous Moving with Somatics course, or Permission of instructor or dance program coordinator is required. Space is limited and priority is given to dance concentrators.
