Intermediate/Advanced Modern Dance Technique Workshop Saturday
Join Betsy Miller for a special modern dance workshop on Saturday December 8th from 11 – 12:30 at 95 Empire!
Intermediate/Advanced Technique Master Class $15
A contemporary release technique with a solid base in ballet, class begins with a full-bodied warm-up designed to activate the core and connect breath with movement while finding anatomically efficient pathways. Structured improvisations and set exercises explore dynamics, weight shifts, and flow to develop a quick mind and a listening body. Class finishes with a vigorous, high-energy dance phrase. Students will be encouraged to explore, take risks, and develop as versatile technicians.
