Emily's classes are a forum for dancers to explore their potential and capabilities in a judgment-free, safe, and fun environment. Beginning with a warm-up designed to stretch, strengthen, build technique, and find proper alignment; dancers will warm their bodies from the inside out and tap into each muscle group, enabling an easy transition to full bodied movement. Warm-up will be followed by an improv exercise, allowing individual movement styles to be touched upon and nurtured. Class will culminate in choreographed phrase-work; emphasizing movement quality, self-expression, and putting a ‘why’ to our movement, while pushing our technical and artistic abilities to the next level.
Warm-up will touch upon stretch, strength, technique building, alignment, and isolation. Followed by across the floor progressions, we will then transition to a stylized phrase; always emphasizing technique with the style of that day’s material layered on top.
