Modern Dance for the Mind,Body, and Soul with Nicole Laliberte// Mondays @7:00-8:30pm // $13 per class; $60 for 6 classes
Class will begin lying on the floor, gently exploring natural movement patterns, drawing upon the somatic principles of Bartenieff Fundamentals and Feldenkrais Awareness through Movement. Standing exercises in the center emphasize articulation of the joints, strength and fluidity of the core and spine, and the body’s natural breath and momentum. Across the floor combinations focus on rhythm, elevations, turns, and changes in level, direction, and dynamic. Influences include the traditional techniques of Horton, Limon, and Cunningham with constant attention to contemporary safe dance practices. While some dance experience is ideal, this class is adaptable to each student’s level of experience and anatomical structure.
