This class is designed for intergenerational participants with a wide range to no dance experience. Class begins with meditation and floor work that includes stretching and mind body centering exercises. Center floor work includes alignment and the introduction of the various dance techniques that are incorporated in the vocabulary of Ronald K. Brown/ EVIDENCE, A Dance Company. Phrases across the floor use influences from western modern dance as well as traditional and social dances from West Africa, the Caribbean and the U.S.
