ABOUT THE CLASS | Significantly informed by both Release and Laban/Bartenieff techniques, this class encourages investigation, problem solving, and versatility. Release technique is a method of movement discovery in which the superficial musculature of the body gives way to essential skeletal mechanisms, ultimately revealing greater dimension throughout the body. Class work will be grounded in the principle that self-exploration is the dancerís most effective tool of development and is essential to finding authenticity of movement. While designed for intermediate to advanced movers, beginning movers with a deep curiosity are also encouraged to attend.
