Act Creation and Character Development @ 1pm
This is a minimally physical class. Mostly I will talk about the importance of music and choice of music, character development though the creation process, musical timing/ mapping/ layout, usage of props (when they can help or when they can hinder a performance), and costumes/colors. Students will be asked to provide music (though I have plenty if it's easier) and we will discuss the possibilities and potential of each piece of music and how we can make it into an act for a showcase, performance, or competition.

Floor Flips and Twists: Transitional Ground Acrobatics for Polers @ 2:30pm
This workshop can be as beginner level or as advanced as needed. Comfortable clothes Suggested.
This workshop will start with a modern-dance based warmup, loosening up joints and getting dancers comfortable with the floor. We will start by exploring different types of ground-rolls to avoid hard knocks and landings. Dancers will learn different movement styles pulling inspiration from contemporary/ modern dance, capoeira, break-dancing, and gymnastics. We will learn moves stationary and take movement across the floor as well as on and off the pole.

Flexibility and Stretch @ 4:30pm
Class starts with a basic warmup just to loosen up the joints and activate muscles and ligaments. Then we move into a series of straddles, lunges, splits, shoulder, and back stretches to gain mobility over time. With form and technique in mind all stretches can be as gentle or as intense at the students wants. This seems like a easy class, but it's not for the faint of heart. I really like to push my students to achieve their maximum potential.
