Learn Contemporary Dance with Rachel
Class will focus on integrating elements of contemporary dance and hip hop with an exploration of musicality, dynamic range, and flow. Each class will begin with a thorough warmup that focuses on strengthening and conditioning the body, while also teaching new movement vocabulary and patterns that will strengthen dancers’ ability to transition between sharp isolation and fluidity in their movement. Each class culminates with a combination that allows dancers the chance to hone the articulation of their bodies while also encouraging individual interpretation and expression within the choreography.
