The Arena – Moving Practice with Sarah McCullough

Moving Practice is a weekly class series for professional dancers. Classes prioritize rigor, diversity of contemporary aesthetics, variety of class content, and commitment.

Sarah McCullough teaches Moving Practice
New time! Tuesdays, 9:30-11:00am

Professional-level dancers of all styles are welcome.
Pre-registration and payment beforehand encouraged.
Suggested price of $17 per class. Pay-as-able option on all classes – we would rather you join us than not be able to attend due to financial limitations.

The goal of this class is to create a space where every mover can indulge in the movement their body desires. The core themes of this practice will include sensory exploration, movement as meditation, and engaging with the body’s intuition. We will move through improvisation and phrase work to engage the senses and awaken the body with a focus on curiosity and aliveness.
