Expanse Lab - Contemporary dance technique and improvisation with Molly McDermott


Class begins with a simple, yet vigorous led warm-up designed to bring everyone into collective movement. This will lead into improvisations guided by imagery. We will continue by learning sequences of movement embracing the floor to start and ending in the air. Molly’s teaching is influenced by her training in Butoh, and a wide variety of contemporary and somatic techniques. Her class is built on the philosophy that dance class is a place to come together as a community while also a place to challenge and care for the body.

Clothes comfortable for moving in and knee pads are a nice option.

*Masks are encouraged but optional.
