Designed for technically advanced movers, the fast pace class flows quickly through meditative floor work, tectonic shifting of one’s body surfaces, gestural practice/understanding, center work, complex across the floor patterns, and finally into detailed repertory based phrase work that demands both mental and physical professionalism.
