Join visiting artist, Alan Perez, for a series of Contemporary workshops on Tuesday mornings! These athletic, high-energy classes will focus on alignment of the body in such a way that weight is supported through the center of the bones and thereby re-patterning the flow of energy so that movement is started by the muscles that are closest to the body’s center. Students will use the power of gravity and the momentum it creates to move through movement with ease and less muscle tension. These classes wil also dive into improvisation as a way to generate new ways of moving, composing and stimulating creativity.
