Class Description

Shannon’s class draws upon her experience working with countertechnique, gaga, acrobatics, partnering and floorwork. Through improvisation tasks we will increase body awareness, challenge our mind, and explore new physical sensations. The class will incorporate technical exercises to increase physical range, strength, and coordination. We will end with a dynamic phrase where these principles can be further explored. This class aims to challenge the limits of our physicality while actively connecting to our passion for dance. We will use music, groove, imagination, and memory to connect to our passion for dance.
