*Friday morning contemporary technique with Kate Seethaler/guests is an
intermediate-advanced level dance class open to anyone who wants to move
thoughtfully and with rigor. Working towards a grounded and direct approach
to movement, our practice is infused with somatic principles and
experiential improvisations. Class work explores a variety of contemporary
dance practices, including sensation-based floor work, improvisational
scores, technically-focused warmup exercises, nuanced phrase work, and much
more. We unpack the physics of movement, ride the wave of momentum, sweep
unabashedly through space, and hone our perceptions to find sublime
subtlety. Senses of fun and curiosity are the only prerequisites. Join us!

**Paige Phillips* is an interdisciplinary artist based in Philadelphia. Her
artwork is situated on the border between the performing and visual arts,
engaging most frequently with dance, movement scores, installation, and
video. Her content is concerned with endurance challenges, and
recontextualizing rituals from pop-culture and religion to better
understand identity politics and community formation. She holds a MFA from
The Ohio State University with an interdisciplinary specialization in
Folklore, a BFA from Cornish College of the Arts, and a diploma from
Interlochen Arts Academy. Phillips was recently an artist in residence at
the Marpha Foundation in Nepal, taught last year at International
School Bangkok, and is currently a member at Mascher Space Cooperative.
