Modern Dance For the Older Dancer @92nd St. Y with Guest Artists: Marnie Thomas Wood and Ellen Graff!
February 1, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
*Guest artists Marnie Thomas Wood and Ellen Graff formerly of the Martha Graham Dance Company join us for a teaching session at Modern Dance for the Older Dancer on Feb 1! They will share beginning ideas and movements in preparation for rehearsals of REVIVAL 2.
Created for the dancer coming back to the studio. Beginning with a standing warm-up opening the spine, expanding physical space, the class moves through a combination of contemporary and traditional dance techniques, yoga influenced and release based work. Focusing on correct alignment, articulation and connected movement, also includes a floor work section informed by Pilates strengthening. Concerned with moving from full expression and purpose, the work integrates the thinking body with the emotional body. Class is completed with adaptable large phrase movement across the floor.
