Intermediate/Advanced Modern II With Miche Wong
Miche's modern class starts with a warm-up that builds the energy foundation for the rest of class. The practice involves guided improvisation, seated or lying down floor movement, and standing footwork. We'll end with a phrase that will get you moving and taking up all of your space! This is best for Int.-Adv students but anyone can give it a try!
Creative Movement focuses on the techniques and tools of dance improvisation. It connects body to imagination through creatively guided movement exercises. It is a fun, physically playful class where you will learn to sharpen the awareness and sensitivity of your own body while connecting with others. The class is designed for people of all ages and is open-level, meaning you need no 'official' dance experience though trained dancers are also very welcome and encouraged to join. The only requirements are to show up with an open mind and commit to not taking yourself too seriously.
