CONTEMPORARY @ DG
Contemporary class at Dancing Grounds offers tools that engender availability to a wide range of movement styles. Classes combine fundamental and familiar technical exercises (floor work, standing exercises in center, and phrase work) with other physical practices (improvisation, breath and energy work, etc) that support the development of performance presence, a fuller range of movement, and the ability to fluidly move through dynamic qualities. Class is open level but moves quickly. Shannon has trained in various contemporary practices in the US, Canada and Europe from ballet to breakdancing to Gaga and Gyrokinesis®.
