Contemporary Modern Dance Class

with

Courtney World

Saturdays 9:30-11:00 a.m.

Tennessee Williams Center Dance Studio

The University of The South, Sewanee, TN

 

Celebrate. Investigate. Explore. Sweat. Spiral. Balance. Fall. Fly. Dance!

Start your weekend with dance! Join us every week, or drop in when you can. This adult class is free and open to students, faculty, staff, and community members.

Come join a community of movers in a Laban/Bartenieff-based technique class based on sound anatomical principles, with creative improvisations, rhythmic phrase work, and dynamic, expressive movement sequences.

Classes are designed for mixed levels of experience and everyone is invited to take class at his or her own pace.

 

Open community classes will not take place during the 2017 Spring Semester. Check back in the Fall!
