Technique / Style:
Sara will provide a relaxed, dynamic and technical class intertwining a combination of her favorite dance styles that include release, Horton and Jazz techniques, infusing floor work and contact improvisation.
Highly influenced by music and rhythm, each class will offer participants the opportunity to use a full range of body movements that build up strength, agility, accuracy and flow. Through a variation of sequences, dancers will have the opportunity to experiment with breath, self-expression and draw from personal experience.
