Class Description | Monday Night Improvisation, 15 February 2021 | ONLINE


"The class will investigate improvising as a way to expand and excite our dancing, working with information we receive from our external environment and circumstance as well as from our internal sensations. We will then experiment with how improvisation can be used in performance, working with simple structures in time and space and allowing an opportunity to watch each other. A chance to enjoy dancing alone and with others - all welcome!" Kate Brown
