Profitraining with Victoria McConnell

Profitraining with Victoria is an offering of structured movement and improvisation designed to ground and support dancers’ bodies while engaging imagination and sensation. Spiralling outwards from self-awareness and warming up towards awareness of others and space, the class grounds, centers, and warms then moves through the room using floor work, improvisation, inversions, turns and finally brings everything together in phrase-work. Seeking intersections between form and freedom, Victoria’s mixed background of contemporary and release techniques, yoga, modern, improvisation and sense of humor create a dynamic, ever-evolving class.
