Kim Epifano’s class builds from a live score setting using contact improvisation, physical action and some use of vocals skills to open the imagination and the body to every performers potential.
Students explore their individual creativity, balance, and body awareness while learning to move in relation to their self, the floor, and a partner. By sharing weight, strength, space and gravity, participants learn how to trust and be trusted while falling on and off the edges of their bodies. We will explore how the ending of one move is the beginning of another and how to utilize momentum to continue the progressive nature of the dance. Improvisation skills will be tuned and explored through interdisciplinary methods Epifano has developed. Be prepared to sweat, have fun! ALL LEVELS WELCOME!
