Class Offerings and Descriptions
Contemporary Technique: Drawing from a broad foundation of Modern, Post-Modern, Jazz, Classical and Africanist dance training, jhon teaches movement focused classes that emphasize the connection between rhythm/musicality and technical mechanics. Fusing a highly energetic and physical vocabulary. These classes are designed to increase kinesthetic and technical strength while expanding the dancer’s physical intelligence. Individuals are encouraged to develop a wide range of skills in instinctive and technical movement performance.
Contemporary Movement Laboratory (CML): CML class sessions explore the art and function of sensation-based improvisation and authentic movement practices, while addressing their application in performance and movement cultivation. Beginning with the philosophy that every dancing body has a specific dance history, participants are instructed to start at their foundation. Similar to the work experienced through GaGa Technique, TITOYAYA, and the Forsythe Technologies, these sessions seek a marriage between somatic philosophy and the western tradition in technical/classical dance technique. With a focus on understanding the polarity between presence and projection, each class session will challenge the individual’s stamina in focus and awareness of their own movement choices/ intentions and facilitate the development of a performance presence that is self aware without judgment.
