Intro to Modern Dance,
Thursdays, March 21 - April 25

Instructor is Elizabeth Field. This is an introductory class series to the Horton modern dance technique. The Horton Technique is a whole body dance technique that explores movement anatomically to include flexibility, coordination, strength, and spatial awareness. We will explore this technique through a warmup, various exercises that have a specific focus (strength, flexibility, etc.), and fortifications that coordinate various movements in and through personal and shared space.
NO PRIOR DANCE EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY!
