Intro to Cunningham-based Technique

Fridays:  April 19, 26, May 3

Open to movers of all levels, this three class series is meant for those who want to explore the technique from the ground up. Over the series, we will dive into both the physical and philosophical ideas behind the work and explore many of the set exercises utilized in a standard Cunningham class.

So that we can build on the material each week, registration for the full series is highly encouraged— 3 classes for $30! We need 6 people registered by Weds 4/17 to run the series, at which point drop-ins will be available at $15/class.
