Taught by Miles Firkins 

Tuesdays, 5:30-7pm, Back Door Studio
$15/class, $60 for 5 classes.

Ever wish technique class left space for your own exploration?
Feeling the need for some structure to balance your improvisation practice?
Looking for bridges between what happens in class and the choreographic process?

Whether you’re a seasoned mover revisiting the origins of your practice, an avid explorer discovering your process, or fresh and new to all of these ideas, this class has a space for you! This class integrates improvisational exploration, technical development, and artistic inquiry into one playful, inquisitive, creative hour and a half. We’ll explore movement concepts and technical principles through improvisation, articulate specific movement skills with the internal support of somatic inquiry and experiential anatomy, and integrate play with vision into co-created choreographic studies.

Movement Educator/Dance Advocate Discount: To support continuing growth for the availability of dance and movement classes in Albuquerque (and the world!), and in hopes that the providers of those opportunities will make time to take part in the fun too, I offer discounted pricing to self-identified movement educators, such as teachers and coaches of dance, yoga, martial arts, circus, somatics, physical education, athletics, zumba, nia, and anatomy, and to dance advocates, such as administrators and staff of dance organizations, professional dancers/performers, social dance organizers, and Albuquerque Dance Exchange members/organizers. I value your work and would love to hear about what you do to help the movement community grow!
