Contemporary Phrase Work with Noelle Kayser, NW Dance Project
IG Live – @noellekayser
This one-hour class keeps the mind and body engaged in the creation process. Each week, we learn a movement phrase, dive deep into its qualities, and find proficiency through intentional repetition. Contemporary Phrase Work is designed as a rehearsal hour to be taken after an online technique class or thorough personal warm-up.
