Hello Philadelphia dancers,

I'm offering a slightly new class and at a very new time that may interest

*Modern Dance for Adults*
Wednesdays 6-7:30pm
Winter #1 Session is January 11- February 22 (Sea-Creature focus)
at University City Arts League (UCAL), 4226 Spruce St. Philadelphia, PA
Registration and more information: http://www.ucartsleague.org/cl
Or, call 215-382-7811

This Modern/Contemporary dance class draws on various concert dance
techniques, but primarily from Bartenieff Fundamentals (BF), and
Developmental Movement Patterns for fun and accessible dance movements. In
the first winter session, I am going to focus on moving like sea-creatures.
The images and coordinations from other life will inspire our movement. The
class will focus on movement fundamentals and thus is appropriate for
beginners as well as more advanced dancers who want to clarify their BF and
Developmental Movement Patterns, practice coordinations, build strength and
endurance, or animal expression. This class includes working on the floor,
so it is recommended to wear clothes that cover shoulders and knees for
comfort while moving.

<http://www.vervetdance.org/more-about-loren-groenendaal.php>is a
