Professional

Sam’s class is a highly physical contemporary class which aims to engage the brain in order to trust the body. Through coordination, partnering, and improvisation exercises, we attempt to ‘fry’ our brains in order to let go and be present in the moment. We then apply this to structured phrases filled with quirky gestures and expansive floor work to find freedom and fun in our dancing.
