Nicole Wolcott, co-founder of K+C, will teach this vigorous class, combining the virtuosity of classical technique and the release of post-modern dance with Wolcott’s own dramatic idiosyncrasies. The result is a quirky but highly athletic aesthetic, that one student describes as, “Punk rock/release-based modern dance.” Each class will focus on teaching the mind and body to work smarter, not harder by placing emphasis on sensation rather than position. This approach encourages relaxation in proper alignment, core support, technical soundness, and harnessing the imagination to open up to our own passion for movement. By rigorously exploring the physics of body weight in drops, catches, and turns, students may develop a technique that is both dynamic and nuanced. Most importantly, dancers are asked to connect to the J.O.D. (Joy of Dance); let go of judgment, invite in curiosity and keep a sense of humor.
Single Class: $17
