Shana Simmons Dance classes will get the body moving. As a teacher, Simmons pulls from her experience with the Graham technique, release style dance, contact improvisation/partnering, and theatrical performance. Classes usually start on the floor for some somatic exercises/warm up. Transitioning into standing material, center combinations test balance, shifting weight, working off center and generating movement from the core. Classes may end in across the floor material or combinations in center.

This class fuses a breadth of styles to create a movement based class that focuses on building functional and healthy technique to support dynamic, clear, and virtuosic movement potential.  We work through slow beginning exercises that draw from Pilates, Yoga, and Irene Dowd choreographies (Helix and Resonance), then progress through classic center exercises from ballet, jazz, and modern forms that target balance, range of motion, coordination, flexibility, and clarity of movement.

STAYCEE PEARL dance project's (SPdp) PhraseWorks is a mixed-genre dance class starting with emphasis on body/mind connection and awareness, efficient anatomical connections, and appropriate use of traditional technical forms. Emphasis is placed on creating space and mobility in the joints with the outcome of effortless length and strength in the body, allowing for expansive risk taking through space. We then learn phrases developed for specific SPdp projects. This weeks class will feature phrases from our most recent work, ABBEY: In The Red.
