THE GET DOWN: A Movement Experience with Bryn Cohn + Artists

Bryn Cohn + Artists’ class integrates principles rooted in contemporary, hip-hop and classical ballet and modern techniques to facilitate playful, rigorous and technical investigation. Warm up begins with both crafted and improvisational exercises that ground the body and center the mind. We calibrate our systems by drawing upon alignment, weight shift, sequencing, momentum, initiation and morphing in and out of form to build a foundation from which to venture on a visceral adventure. The malleable, acute and architectural qualities cultivated provide a springboard to launch into dynamic – based, athletic and gestural vocabularies. Music sourced from electronic to trance to pop genres generate a pulsing, beat – driven auditory landscape to incite tangible ways of connecting to syncopation and rhythmic nuance.

BRYN COHN: Described as having “a brilliant mind” (Dance Enthusiast) Bryn Cohn founded the New York-based dance company Bryn Cohn + Artists whose work has been performed at Danspace Project, Gibney Dance, 92nd Street Y, 14th Street Y, Ailey Citigroup, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, Boston University, Nazareth College, Dixon Place, Judson Church, Abrons Arts Center and Triskelion Arts among others.
