Breathe Easy, Move Freely
Through imagery, fantasy, guided improvisation, and phrase work, dancers explore the tools of gravity, breath, and the natural flow of energy in the search for effort reduction in contemporary movement—exploring how breath can be used as a tool for authentic expression.
African Contemporary; Afro-Brazillian; Traditional West-African
Drawing from traditional West African movements and contemporary dance principles, this class focuses on rooting—incorporating groove into release, lines, contraction, spinal mobility, and grounding.
Through active investigation, African dances uniquely improve expression while enhancing the body and musical awareness, enabling the dancers to be centered and connected with themselves and their surroundings.
Ballet Technique for Movers
Dancers explore the classical ballet technique through a contemporary lens, focusing on musicality and connection through line, direction, and limb. This class is specifically designed for advanced to professional-level dancers from all genres who want to hone their technical skills, with an eye towards endurance, clarity and energy.

Visceral Movement Theory™ — Suspended Action
Movement & Partnering
Playing with dynamic balance, the persistence of momentum, and the sensations of gravity suspension, dancers release the stored power and strength from our structures by exploring the action potential of our joints, tendons, and fascia. Through guided movements, partnering, and phrase work, dancers should expect floorwork, mid to high-level movement, and working with partners of varied genders and sizes.
Sweta Ravisankar (Sarada Kala Nilayam)
Storytelling through Bharatanatyam
In the language of Bharatanatyam, one of India's rich dance traditions, students ground their bodies into pure expression-based nuance, adapting rhythm, gesture, and form in this contemporary context of story through movement. Students will learn, explore, and create from the foundations of Bharatanatyam to enhance their technique and performance expression.
Stephanie Zaletel (SZALT)
Informed by an embodied understanding of autonomy, dancers will work with the energy and interests of the collective, memory research, and structured play. Building from an intuitive floorwork warm up into new repertoire from my new work, ‘Vagus Excerpts’, we explore dreams and the language of the nervous system.
