Join for a studio practice that explores and refines releasing techniques, improvisation, sequentiality, spirals, momentum, as well as off-center and upside-down play. Class begins on the floor, progresses through developmental movement patterns, then gradually rises to dynamic center and traveling phrases. Material is approached in a manner that douses competitiveness in favor of encouraging curiosity and knowledge-sharing among a supportive community of intermediate/advanced movers.
Basic is an intersectional, intergenerational modern dance class designed to unite people of all experience levels through movement (including beginners!). Students can expect exercises to be taught at a gradual, gentle pace that focuses on developmental movement patterning, balance, breathing, and simple choreography. Megan offers exercises in such a way that empowers students to individually modify movements for more or less challenge. Students are encouraged to interact, help each other create mini-dances, and celebrate their unique and shared movement experiences throughout class. In addition to focusing on precision, the class is intended to embolden new movers and provide a gentle weekly practice for more experienced movers at the same time.
