Advanced Modern & Movement Lab
w/ Nicole Pierce
Thursdays 6-7:30pm Ongoing
A class for experienced dancers that explores technical challenges through a mix of classical and distinctive movement vocabularies. The warm up focuses on healthy alignment tailored to individual needs, as well as techniques for increasing strength, stability, flexibility, long lines and mental acuity. The bulk of the class (the “lab”) moves through a long phrase of muscular, inventive, textural movement, as well as keen musicality and rhythm. Nicole encourages the exploration of small detail and nuance just as much as the larger picture to shape the individual voice. The end result: you walk out of class not only a better dancer but a better performer as well.

Learn and perform a Nicole Pierce dance in 10 days!-Beginning February 5th Nicole will build a progressive phrase or “rep” element into her class. Those who would like to perform this repertory piece will do so the weekend of April 10-12 at GSS!

Jazz Repertory Class
w/ Adrienne Hawkins
Tuesdays at 6PM – 7:30PM
Beginning January 20th 
This repertory class starting January 20, 2015 is structured to create a work that has the power of Modern, the soul of Jazz, and the spirituality of the Blues put in an emotional context of contemporary life through pure movement.  It’s polyrythmical, fast and fun.   This piece will be created in 12 classes and performed at GSS the weekend of April 10-12.

Afro-Contemporary Dance and Repertory Class
w/ Marsha Parilla
Mondays 9:30AM – 11AM Ongoing
Marsha’s unique approach focuses on organic and efficient movement. The class targets specific elements of anatomy to foster injury prevention, while moving to contagious Afro diasporic beats.
Each class provides floor exercises, across the floor combinations, as well as a final phrase that incorporates the elements explored in class. The final choreography pays attention to flow, musicality, and timing.
A great way to start the week!
Level: Although the class can be adjusted to absolute beginners, some dance/movement experience is preferred.

Somatic Movement and Improvisation
w/ Joe Burgio
Mondays 5:45 – 7:00 Ongoing
 Discover ways of deriving movement by exploring the anatomical systems of the body, embryology, evolutionary biology, and the energetic of systems of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Yoga.    The practice works toward an integration of mind, body and space, and will be of interest to passionate movers, the deeply curious, and those seeking the rich simplicity of moving in natural forms.
We will also use our explorations to structure to improvisational compositions, and develop a vocabulary of improvisation.   Class participants willing to commit to rehearsals will be invited  to perform in a repertory piece, Time Travel with the Enneagram, to be shown in April 2015 at Green Street Studios.  Participants who are not interested in performing are welcome to work with the material also.
