Modern Dance in the Park—Intermediate/Advanced Level:
  • Focus on spaciousness, buoyancy, artistic expression and the joy of dancing together
  • Warm-up followed by vigorous and free-flowing movement
  • Primarily postmodern/release and Limon influences
  • Previous formal dance training strongly recommended

Dance for Joy
  • This is an open level class.
  • Let’s refresh our spirits and shake off the challenges of the last year with some uplifting, energizing dancing! We will focus on full-body movement that is both freeing and grounding, and influenced by yoga, modern dance, and social dancing. The class also fosters creativity and artistic expression. And we will be dancing together, in person—what a joy!
  • Previous experience with yoga, modern dance, ballet or Jazzercise recommended.
