Event description

Description

Join us at LED's new studio (1420 W. Grove St.) for the premiere classes of our new open class dance series! We offer two classes every Thursday: one for any and all and one for pre-professional, intermediate dancers. This specific series will be taught by Brett Perry.

Only 15 dancers per class. Attend the entire 4-class series for $50, or drop in to a class for $15 at the door.


BEGINNER CLASS 6-7pm

Participants are guided through a simple warm up and multiple exercises that encourage discovery and proper alignment. The class culminates in dancers being guided through improv exercises as a way to find their own groove and relish the sensation of their own movement style. Open to all ages and ability levels!

INTERMEDIATE CLASS 7:15-8:45pm

This contemporary class hopes to awaken the athlete and artist in all of us. Rooted in clear technique practices it emphasizes healthy alignment, flexibility, stamina and artistry. These principles are used as points of departure for risk taking and investigation. Improvisational tools are utilized as a way to awaken the senses, challenge movement conventions, and find ways to navigate from feet to floor seamlessly. This high intensity class gives dancers the opportunity to dig deep into the movement and investigate elements of dynamics, direction, size and texture.
