This workshop is designed for dancers looking to build or re-visit the basic techniques of contemporary floor work. Each workshop, you will explore how to use the physicality of your body to connect with gravity and utilize the floor as a dancing partner. Kristin will offer a close, hands-on-approach to helping you understand the mechanics, build the strength, and use proper alignment to move in and out of the floor with efficiency and confidence.
