Improvisation
We’ll explore what it means to embody water, fire, and air. We will tap into the imagery element of improvisation, building on the layers within that allow us to present movement in a fresh light. Throughout this class, dancers can anticipate exploring the meaning of improvisation through sections of the body. We will play with freedom of movement through the eyes and facial expressions, hands/fingers, tailbone, and other smaller fractions of the body that focus on intricate movements. From this exploration, we can discuss how these seemingly small elements can dictate larger movements. For instance, mimicking the fingertips within how the legs walk, and asking, what story am I telling?
