This contemporary dance class approaches technique from a place of curiosity, exploration and expansion. Waking up each part of the body, dancers will be lead through a warm up designed to create space and availability in the body. Drawing from Rachel's momentum-based style of movement, we will find fluid transitions in and out of the floor, explore new spatial pathways and dive into juicey, dynamic phrase work. Come sweat, fly and fall! 

Rachel is co-director of Muddy Feet Contemporary Dance, dances for Top Shake Dance and teaches dance for Portland Public Schools and at several studios around town.
