With this class we aim to gain a better understanding of the body and how different dynamics generate a different movement quality. We will use notions of different dance techniques such as Graham, Cunningham, Release and floorwork to strengthen the body as well as stimulate creativity and musicality. Intermediate Classes with Claire work at a faster pace.
