Contemporary Dance

Description

Michael’s multi-level, non-competitive contemporary class is designed to improve harmony of movement by incorporating a series of non-stop combinations intended to thoroughly warm and fine-tune the body so that it is ready to perform.  The warm-up utilizes a unique approach, blending styles (Graham, Horton, Yoga and Ballet) which are integrated beautifully.  Michael then teaches his soulful style of choreography which is music-driven and inspired from his many years as a principal dancer with the Ailey Company, Complexions, and Lar Lubovitch, among others.  The combination builds throughout the week in order to develop the students' artistic and technical performance quality.
