2022 STUDIO ClassES & Workshops

Technique, Musicality, and the Joy of Movement with Gerri Houlihan

January 23-june 12, 2022
Sundays, 1:00PM-2:15pm

Location: Scripps Studio | 721 Broad Street, Durham, NC
Tuition: $15 per in-person class

Students MUST show proof of vaccination and wear masks.

These classes are offered to dancers of various skill levels to bring us together in an open and supportive way and connect us all to our love for dance and community. Grounded in the fundamentals of traditional modern technique, particularly the work of José Limón, the class focuses on concepts of alignment, core strength, and the use of breath for efficiency of movement. The class will begin with simple floor exercises and develop into standing warm-up combinations and a center movement phrase.

Because music and its relationship to movement is such an important focus for Gerri’s approach to dance, we are delighted to say that music for these classes will be provided by our wonderful long-time ADF musician, John Hanks.
