About the Class
This day of dance at STOMPING GROUND LA will begin with a ballet class (featuring live music by Sharon Lam). We'll focus on organization, function, and moving the body through space while connecting to musicality and agency. Our on-going work in this class is about shifting away from the limiting aesthetic of ballet and instead using the technique as a tool to explore our own dance values. All bodies, all people, all relationships to ballet welcome here!
We'll follow ballet with a phrase work class, learning original choreography by Spenser. Our approach will piggyback off the values we centered in ballet, focusing on individualization and authentic interpretation. We'll focus on the POINT of the material, as opposed to the look of it, and practice strategies for embodying the movement. Improvisation, imagery, text prompts, and personal research time will all be used in this practice. And as always, our goal is to love the endless pursuit of our practice, not to present a finished product.
Dancers are welcome to register for each class separately, or register for both for a discount.
