NEW! Intermediate/Advanced Contemporary Modern

STARTS October 4!

Fridays – 10:00 – 11:30 am

Instructor: Marisa Shimano

Description:

Malashock Company dancer Marisa blends Horton technique with contemporary movement in her Int/Adv Modern Contemporary class. Marisa focuses on helping dancers build a strong, supportive foundation so that they can fully tap into their athleticism and artistry. Class begins with a full-body warm-up to strengthen and stretch the body, then travels across the floor for work on leaps, turns, and movement through space. Each class ends with a short segment of choreography as an opportunity for dancers to experiment with musicality, improve retention of choreography, and find their individual artistic voice. Marisa encourages a positive atmosphere in her class and loves nothing more than seeing dancers find joy or release in movement. This class is geared towards the intermediate/advanced dancer, but questions are welcome and modifications are always provided.
