WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

 

The class is a mix of set and improvisational work. Brianna’s own training is highly influenced in yoga and chi kung and these practices are present in class. With a large focus on floorwork and moving with momentum, the goal is to find a powerful strong body that remains supple and able to react in the moment.

The class will involve a warm up comprised of set floor work and explorations, standing work dealing with energy and building stamina and finish with phrases from the work « this duet that we’ve already done » which she will be performing at the festival. With an interest in staying in the moment and making decisions while working with set material.
