Beginning with guided improvisations, we focus on getting the blood flowing, awakening the skin’s sensation, and inviting brain and body to arrive in the space. Moving in and out of the floor with more structured exercises, we activate the core and large muscle groups while exploring the head-tail connection and the body’s edge versus center. Eating the space with spirals, floorwork and turns, we progress across the space using improvisation tasks and simple phrases to integrate sensation and detail with larger movements. Bringing the various elements together, the class culminates in learning some phrase-work and developing it further always playing with contrast and oppositional forces. Victoria’s class is a collage of influences drawn from her technical training, her diverse performance experience, from deepening improv explorations, and from her own creative practice of choreography and writing. Aiming for engaged senses and stronger connections between mind and body, the movement flavors and technical vocabulary of the class encompass elements from yoga to contemporary improvisation, and many other things in between.
