This class has been described as organic and grounded.  Class begins with a modern based warm-up with an emphasis on strength and core technique. Choreography is designed to help the dancer become connected to movement by dancing from the inside out. The class experiments with different types of music ranging from tribal rhythms to contemporary composers. The class is often accompanied with live musicians.
