Contemporary I

Semester: 

Spring

Level: I
Instructor: Whitney Cover 
In this introduction to Contemporary dance movement, we will explore dynamic alignment and efficiency of movement by warming the body with attention to structure and fluidity in the joints. Tasks and movement phrases will help students explore the body’s relationship to gravity, space, and weight while moving on and out of the floor. Emphasis is placed on building a mental toolkit for approaching phrasework and improvisation, while increasing awareness of our physical bodies in daily life as well as our capacity for play and discernment. No previous dance experience necessary; open to ALL bodies and abilities. 
Location: Harvard Dance Center, Studio 2 (HDC 2), 66 Garden St.

Attire: Workout/dance wear or anything comfortable to move in and bare feet or socks.
