This contemporary dance class is fast-paced and technically driven featuring a mixture of contemporary dance techniques with an emphasis on the use of weight and release. Class starts with a flow warm-up on the floor applying the basics of Bartenieff fundamentals, working toward achieving comfort and ease in the body including smooth flow and improved coordination. Dancers will then be lead through standing and traveling phrases, working up to faster tempos across the floor, focusing on coordination and transitions with jumps and inversions into floor work. Class ends with choreography that will be repeated for a month.

Alicia is co-director of ARC in Movement, dances with BodyVox, and teaches dance at Sultanov Russian Ballet Academy and The Circus Project.
