More info on the Spring Session:
Invite your friends to Spring:

This unique contemporary modern dance class is both creative and somatic.
Each class includes technical skills and creative opportunities. Imagery
and anatomical cues propel our movement and understanding of our bodies.
The movement vocabulary comes from teacher Loren Groenendaal's
choreographic interests connected to her work with Vervet Dance. The
movement is contemporary with influences from Modern Dance, Release
Technique, Bartenieff Fundamentals, Developmental Movement, Laban Movement
Analysis, and sometimes Hip Hop and classical Balinese Dance. This class
provides opportunities for understanding of your body, building
coordination, harnessing your strength, moving more ease-fully, learning
movement from others, and exploring one's own movement signature and
interests. This session will continue with tidal water dances inspired by
our Delaware River.

This class often includes working on the floor, and it is recommended to
wear clothes that cover shoulders and knees for comfort while moving. This
class is geared towards adults, but teens with dance training and focus may
join. This class is open to all genders.
