with Brad Beakes and Tamisha A. Guy

August 3

10AM and 12PM

Ages 12-18

@ BellWorks 101 Crawfords Corner Road Holmdel




10AM - 11:30AM

The emphasis of class is to explore the fullness of movement in relation to quality, isolation and speed. Through a blend of classical modern techniques and contemporary aesthetics we build upon our understanding of weight distribution, intricate and circular pathways and efficient transitions through guided improvisation and phrase work.



12PM - 1:30PM

This contemporary meets modern technique class progresses through a succession of movement combinations focused on alignment, transfer of weight, and musicality. 


It’s a dance party playlist romp that strives to groove and also stand on one leg. Group problem solving throughout class hopes to unearth pragmatic strategies that can work for the individual. Repetition and discussion are key ingredients in the process.

Class material will delve into a Venn diagram of release techniques, music video nods, floorwork, and Humphrey/Limón principles. A rotating mixtape of music will offer class combinations a rhythmic playground to bounce ideas off of. This class aims to leave artists feeling curious and secure within large movement patterns / phrasework whether headed to rehearsal, haven’t danced in a minute, or are just coming to vibe.


Pricing: Free of Charge
