Contemporary with Bliss Kohlmyer, University of South Florida
Integrating and borrowing values from modern, post-modern, and classical traditions, this class is rooted in a very technical base, with an emphasis on precision and clarity. Nevertheless, the class unfolds in a way that allows for a sense of release. Bliss’ affinities for gestural intricacy, rhythmic complexity, articulation of the spine and other joints, and quick changes of weight result in a full-bodied and physically demanding class. The class will begin with a follow-me warmup and then will continue into phrase work that will be exhilarating and fun!
