Impulse, Momentum, and Fluidity with Donna Mejia
This class will explore continuums of movements: the uninterrupted flow of movement in both the standing body (transferred as waves) and traveling body (progressions across the floor). We will investigate the idea of obstructions or default movement habits. Our class objective is NOT to create a specific style or aesthetic of dace. Rather, we will workshop our way through common patterns of resistance. Participants can expect a substantial and vigorous warmup (please bring a yoga mat), followed by short phrases of choreography danced across the room. We will give special focus to traveling patterns in the feet, and integration of hip/torso work in conjunction with traveling. Building confidence with improvisation and perpetuity is what we’re aiming for. As always, I promise the best
music in the universe (!), respect for your dignity as a participant, honesty, and much laughter during our “laboratory” time together.
