December Company Class with Artistic Director Jamila Glass


Class Name: The Space in Between.  

Class Description: This contemporary class lives somewhere in the middle of accented and released movement. Class will begin with a warmup focused on firing up the blood flow through our core while introducing key movement from the phrase work.  Discover how to quickly sit in the pocket of music that may be new to your ears and how to efficiently fill up all the spaces in between from moment to moment.
