This class will work towards allowing the innate order and imagination of the moving body to become more present in our dancing. Our warm up will help us become more familiar with our range of effective force, momentum, coordination, weight and balance. We will encourage each cell, joint, bone, fiber, what-have-you, in our bodies to be co-responsive to each other in a vast network that emphasizes kinetic dexterity within multi-layered forms.
