Sophia Smith- Open Contemporary
12/14 -6PM

Description:
Class will begin with a guided warm up encouraging dancers to focus on athleticism and expansion in movement. From there we will focus on how this translates into across the floor and center movement, as well as some improv. We will learn a phrase where we can then apply the principles focused on during class. This is a space for dancers to take risks and explore their artistry. Let’s dance, friends!
