This Contemporary Dance class offers a soft and conscious approach to movement and follows the same structure every week. The relationship to music is present throughout the session, with an eclectic selection of styles from different eras and cultures. The warm-up is improvisation based, allowing the participants to connect to their imagination and sensations as they start bringing movement into their articulations and building their foundations for the rest of the class. After this gradual practice, Julie invites the participants to raise consciousness to the whole group. An exercise of group improvisation, different walks through the space, or group games complete the individual practice. The class progresses into structured sequences based on body mechanisms, use of weight, gravity, release, and expansion. Julie facilitates this exploration by helping each student to find efficiency in dynamic movements.
