Morning Class With Jamie Wright (Montreal) says
“Technique is whatever you need to do, to do what you need to do.” -Jonathan Burrows

Pleasure, pertinence, precision, participation, (im)perfection. These are a few of the zones we will be playing in during the course of the week. The goal is to reveal what the body needs in order to be instantly dedicated to the execution of movement as well as aware of said execution. Emphasis will be placed on a tactile connection with the floor, strengthening core support, the relationship between the body’s axis and space, and the equilibrium between muscular engagement, efficiency and effort.
Shoes welcome, but not required.
