Lexi Vajda instructs the following:
In this contemporary technique class we will use floor work and release- based techniques to explore the anatomical structure of the body and sequential movement. Working with gravity as an initiating force for dancing, we will play with pushing, pulling, falling and spirals in different patterns and combinations to travel across the space while moving in and out of the floor. The class will begin with variations of bodywork and movement improvisation then gradually build in intensity and complexity as we progress from moving close to the floor to more upright and upside down movement patterns.
