Jacob welcomes dancers and movement artists to a multifaceted intermediate modern class. He encourages participants to take risks throughout the movement material by focusing on following and breaking momentum, exploring weight in the body, and finding clarity in space. He will facilitate students’ focus on intrinsic connections between body and mind, establishing a kinetic, intuitive interface between impulse and its expression through movement.
