Course content
Modern technique classes prepare the student for neo-classical and more modern repertoire through building a different vocabulary, still bearing the classical training of the students in mind. Some goals for these classes include:

Learning objectives 
The student:

  • Accesses its technique through movement, not placement.
  • Communicates concepts physically, intellectually and philosophically. Creates the opportunity to tap into its physicality from other areas of itself, building a whole artist.
  • Learns to work with tools not steps.
  • Demonstrates its work with clear intention.
  • Is able to share this process verbally and in written form through assigned tasks, creating self-awareness in its development, personal goals and accomplishments.
  • Learns to expect excellence from itself. Learn how to work, by finding nuance in its movement and artistry.
  • Will learn dance technique based on the science of the human body as we understand it today, by avoiding technique based on aesthetic or preference.
  • Learns to takes responsibility for its role. The student is invited to participate in a functional dialogue and help create an environment where everyone is supported, heard and available to be their best.
