MORNING CLASS:

Levi Gonzalez. Morning Class
October 6-23. Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10am-12pm. $14 
Movement Research at Danspace Project, 131 E 10th Street

We usually begin slowly, with imagery and gentle preparation inspired by various somatic traditions to access our awareness of the senses, the organs, the skeleton, the cells, gravity, and other energetic forces. Class may also include technical exercises, choreographic structures (“phrases”), improvisations, and performance constructs, with a focus on precision, ownership, and play.
