regular Drop-In


CONTEMPORARY RELEASE TECHNIQUE THURSDAYS 4-5:20PM

*Class Description: *Maggie's Contemporary Release Technique focuses on
bodily dualistic investigation and practice: physical and spiritual,
somatic and performative, inside out and outside in, and the relationship
of internal and external energy. The concept of maintaining the dualities
while dancing is inspired by Maggie's cross-cultural life/spiritual
experiences and pedagogical research, the West and East. The class
instruction flows with the progression from simplicity to sophistication by
cultivating and inviting dancers to embody Buddhist and Taoist philosophies
throughout their practice.
Cost: $12 Students, Professionals and PhiladelphiaDANCE.org Members, $15
regular Drop-In

Both Classes will be taught by Kyl/d’s REHEARSAL DIRECTOR MAGGIE ZHAO

CHI AWARENESS PRACTICE W/ KUN-YANG LIN: SATURDAYS FROM 12:30-1:50PM

*Class Description: Lin's signature CHI Awareness Technique is the
foundational technique for Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D). It explores the
spaces where Western dance forms including ballet, modern, post-modern and
hip-hop meet the impulses of Eastern philosophies, including Taoism and Zen
Buddhism. The class focuses on how, through modulation of breath (or "chi",
in Mandarin), weight and weightlessness co-exist simultaneously and energy
seamlessly transitions among explosive bursts of rapid, expansive phrase
work, and absolute stillness. Class begins quietly and gradually builds in
complexity, culminating in dynamic phrase work. CHI Awareness Technique
expands the perimeter of Western dance practices through an Eastern
perspective that reflects Lin's conception of dance as the ultimate
integration of body, spirit and mind.  *
