Class Description at The Beacon:


The workshop is an exploration of contemporary movement. The

movement information is an amalgamation of many physical practices

drawing from modern techniques to provide technical information and

movement challenges facilitating the development of strength, flexibility,

versatility and mobility. Beginning with a comprehensive warm-up

suitable for all bodies and levels the class continues with motion diversity:

locomotion, transitions in movement, speed, timing, efficiency and

culminates in a developed movement phrase.
