Victoria Lundell’s Modern Dance Flow Basics
Sat, Aug 13, 9:30 am - 11:00 am CLASS / WORKSHOP
Modern dancer Victoria Lundell (Mark Morris, Parsons) developed Modern Dance Flow Basics in response to the lack of opportunity for adults with an interest in dance to be met at their own skill level in a weekly class that offers an accessible experience of the structured alignment, focus, musicality, play, and artistry of modern dance. Blending modern techniques and styles from Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Bella Lewitsky, and Paul Taylor with elements from ballet, improvisational moments, and stretching and strengthening moves from Yoga and Pilates, Modern Dance Flow Basics reflects years of thinking about how to bring the joys of dance to the non-professional adult. No modern dance experience is necessary, though some experience with yoga, pilates, social dance, or any form of structured movement is helpful. Absolute beginners will be offered modifications when applicable
$15/session, payable on-site to the instructor.
