This class introduces you to modern dance. The class is designed for beginners or more experienced dancers that wish to work on the basics. You will discover what it is like to dance from release, use of space, breath and body awareness. We work on a free body posture and you learn to play with gravity. It is an introduction and deepening of the basic techniques of modern dance and an allround dance training. Expect a physical and dynamic class with depth!
