Int/Adv Contemporary Studio Practice with Megan Yankee

Tuesday evenings, 7:00-8:30pm

January 7-April 28 (NO CLASS MARCH 3)
Price: $15 to drop-in or use class card

ENROLLMENT OPTION: $96 to enroll for full 8 class series starting 3/10 

 
Join Megan for a studio practice that explores and refines releasing techniques, improvisation, sequentiality, spirals, momentum, as well as off-center and upside-down play. Class begins on the floor, progresses through developmental movement patterns, then gradually rises to dynamic center and traveling phrases. Material is approached in a manner that douses competitiveness in favor of encouraging curiosity and knowledge-sharing among a supportive community of intermediate/advanced movers.
