MORNING CLASS WITH JOHN JASPERSE

MON 10am-12pm

Movement Research, 122 Community Center

150 1st Ave, Ninth Street Studio

The class will begin with an anatomy focused warm-up, drawn from both traditional and recent techniques, aiming to align and re-pattern the energy flow in the body in order to find support from the floor and our connection into space. We will begin with simple movements, improvisation scores, exercises and sequences, gradually building in complexity. We will learn movement material, some from Jasperse's work and some created for these explorations. Our goal will be to integrate energetic patterning explored in the first portion of class and to play with different manners of experiencing and embodying the choreographic material.
