Beginning/Intermediate Contemporary with Mary Carbonara, Robert Moses’ Kin
Ideal for new and returning dancers, Mary’s class focuses on increasing range of motion, building strength and flexibility, musicality and stamina. Habits will be undone to find greater ease and bolder effort. With an emphasis on injury prevention, moving big in limited spaces and dancing longer, Mary Carbonara’s classes are based on the pedagogical methods of Master Teacher Lynn Simonson, and incorporate aspects of the Cunningham and Horton Techniques. The focus of each class is to help dancers build a solid and expressive technique through a clear articulation and progression of foundational alignment and movement principles. Students can expect to improvise and work with a variety of different music.
Mary Carbonara (Contemporary) began teaching dance in the Bay Area in 1988 following years of technical and pedagogical training from master teacher Lynn Simonson in New York. Mary has taught locally, nationally, and internationally, including New York, Chicago, Tallahassee, Tokyo and Calcutta.
