CLASS DESCRIPTION:

A physically demanding Contemporary class that incorporates technique, floor work, and efficient release and strengthening. Combining European and classical Modern techniques with a Contemporary flavor, Marijke's movement language and style of F teaching allows dancers to explore and own their individual voice and develop expressive power of pure emotion and physicality. Dancers are encouraged to make the movement material work for themselves, be creative, take chances, and dance to their fullest!
