Modern Dance


Instructor: Jill Becker
Saturdays – January through May
10:00A to 11:00A
Presbyterian Church in Yellow Springs, Ohio
(10 classes for $90, Drop-in class $10)

Like The Fluid Core, we begin each class with floor exercises to awaken, stretch and strengthen the middle body. We then progress to standing and traveling dance movement phrases that are based in musicality. There is often an opportunity to work together with other dancers. The atmosphereis relaxed and playful.
