This class will put you in touch with familiar muscles, and introduce you to new ones in a warm, encouraging environment that allows students to push their limits safely and effectively. As we stretch, we will also discuss injury prevention and bending as it pertains to dance, performance and daily function. Each week we will explore a different part of the body ranging from upper backs and shoulders to hips, thighs and even feet. We will work on clean lines, simple tricks and expanding range of motion. There is no flexibility prerequisite for this class, those who can't touch their toes will get just as much out of it as those who can sit on their own heads.
