My class starts with a full warm-up using passive stretching and body weight conditioning with a strong yoga influence. The combos consist of a themed concept usually dealing with a variety of experimental body movement and placement to exercise not only body but mind as well. I try to focus on a different subject/concept every class so that students get a variety of movement at the same time as working up a sweat and having fun. As dancers we are very critical of ourselves and others and use the mirror as a tool to judge ourselves instead of focusing on positive qualities. Class to me is about trial and error where there is no judgement and not being perfect is okay. I keep it a very positive environment and treat the class as a learning experience not only for them but for me as well so we are all on an equal level.
