Contemporary - Alias
In this class students will begin with a series of safe drills and movements that compliment Alias' repetoire. Students will be given the tools they need to understand how their body moves and they will be encouraged to explore all the possibilities of their body in motion. Pulling from multiple forms of dance and body conditioning this class will prepare dancers for the unique physicality required of an Alias dancer.
