His company A Waiting Dog, makes work that focuses on the body in consequence as the main source of expression. His interests pull from philosophy, neuroscience, psychology and phenomenology The class is based on the premise of using your inner core and your outer kinesphere to maintain balance and coordination so we can blur the lines between verticality and horizontality. The focus of the class has two parts: to provide the tools for strengthening the technical underpinnings of the dancer, and to dance. We start the class with different techniques that properly warm up the body and allow the dancer to functionally participate in a variety of styles. We find stability while on the floor and while standing. This class is a personal laboratory for each dancer to dive into their bodily selves, but it is also a communal atmosphere where the class moves as one, sweats as one, and encourages and learns from each other. The class utilizes floor work, release technique and head-tail connections to create delicate and strenuous phrases that challenge each dancer.
