Dances for a Variable Population Workshops
led by Goldberg Haas

Date: August 21-25 | 9-10:30am
Location: The Yard's open-air studio
Pricing: $15 per class

Dances for a Variable Population was created for the dancer coming back to the studio. Beginning with a standing warm-up opening the spine, expanding physical space, the class moves through a combination of contemporary and traditional dance techniques, yoga influenced and release based work. Focusing on correct alignment, articulation and connected movement, the class also includes a floor work section informed by Pilates strengthening. Concerned with moving from full expression and purpose, the work integrates the thinking body with the emotional body. Class is completed with adaptable large phrase movement across the floor.
