Class Title: Contemporary with Myles Lavallee.
Class Description: This is an Int/Adv contemporary dance class that begins with alignment and technique to warm up the body. Organically, we transition into some guided improvisation to open up the mind and senses in connection with the body. Lastly, we continue into some contact partnering work and/or phrase work that focuses on breath, emotion, textures, level, points of initiation, and musicality.
