Moving Practice is a weekly class series for professional dancers. Classes prioritize rigor, diversity of contemporary aesthetics, variety of class content, and commitment.
Kendall Kramer teaches in November
Professional-level dancers of all styles are welcome.
Suggested $17 per class; however, there is a pay-as-able option on all classes – we would rather you join us than not be able to attend due to financial limitations.
This class is a hybrid of foundational ballet technique, breathwork, and exercises for alignment, taught with a gentle approach. No barre in this class! Instead, we will practice plenty of exercises to help us feel grounded and warmed up for longer exercises in the center, across the floor, and a final combo. I am creating this class in particular for dancers who want to strengthen their ballet muscles and technique, or to practice the form in a less traditional environment. Hope to see you there!
