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.
