Release-Based Contemporary with Kara Brody

Event Type
Event Description

This class offers students an embodied practice that is rooted in floor work, release-based technique, and somatic practices.  Students will be taken through a series of sequences that will progress from the floor to standing, building practical skills to move more efficiently in the body and in space. We’ll explore what it means to move through large virtuosic movement while taming the effort to create a more conducive blueprint of how we utilize our bodies in a physical practice. Riding momentum, tuning into the various access points of weight, and questioning the circumstances of gravity are all common themes that will be explored.
