Master Class with Margi Cole

Event Type
Event Description

Margi’s technique class is designed to emphasize conditioning, coordination, alignment, clarity, rhythm and artistry. All of this is best achieved through and with honest effort. Informed by her training in classical ballet, Limon, Cunningham, Graham and release-based technique, she calls this self-assembled eclectic technique the “Margi Style”. The class is designed around an infrastructure of principles that include articulation of the spine, finding the supporting leg, dropping your weight, changing direction, falling through space and efficiently moving in and out of the floor. These ideas are then further supported by the use of mixed rhythms, strong imagery and a desire to find the spaces in between really specific forms, which is where the real “dancing” is happening.
