Introduction to Contemporary Movement

Course description:

Students learn to discover movement through directed improvisation exercises. This allows the student to develop a dance style of their own as opposed to just copying a teacher. By the end of the sessions, students will have uncovered a new way to move their bodies that feels comfortable & familiar.

Teaching approach:

Jessica's approach to teaching varies from others as she wants to promote the development of new movement in each student as opposed to trying to get them to copy her movement. This allows the student to develop both physically and mentally as an artist.
