Contemporary/Modern Technique

Class is a safe place where we learn and grow as a community regardless of level and experience. 

Contemporary/modern technique class begins with a Simonson Technique-based warm-up. Simonson Technique, created and developed by Lynn Simonson, is a comprehensive and organic approach to movement that prepares the body to dance in a way that is anatomically intelligent and respectful of the musculoskeletal parameters of each individual student.

We then move naturally into phrases that include complex patterns, retrograde movement, and stretching. We improvise, we use the floor, and we use each other. Finally, we finish with a longer, more challenging phrase of movement that experiments with partnering, levels, facings, and musicality.
