Open company class. Taught by Amanda Acorn
$10 drop in. Cash and credit card accepted.
A morning class for the professional dance artist that engages with the practical, the magical and the imaginary. Beginning with the exploration of practical anatomy and our senses in the present moment we will employ both set choreography and improvisational strategies to cultivate an expanded physical and energetic body.
