Structured improvisation exercises will allow beginners to feel move comfortable in their own bodies, as they cultivate their unique movement language. Improvisation is also an important tool for more professional dancers, as it allows them to offer their creative voice to works of choreography, and can aid in unlocking your body to introduce new ways of moving.
The 1.5 hour classes will be split between technique class and structured improv exercises for adults. They will include : a warm up, technique exercises in the center and traveling, and sometimes small movement phrases to learn.

Each module will progress in difficulty from each session to the next. This structure will allow students to track their progress over the weeks, and come to the program with the mindset of completely a whole course.
