This Modern dance class is open to new and experienced movers ages 14+ who wish to find joy in dancing. Drawing from traditional and contemporary forms, dancers will expand their kinesthetic awareness through practice of across the floor and center combinations, improvisation, and floor work. In an inclusive, body-positive atmosphere, we suspend, release, sweat, and find the floor.
