Master Class Series

Somatic-Based Modern Technique with Renay Aumiller

February 18, 2014 from 5:30 – 6:50pm

Carmichael Dance Studio (2307 Carmichael Gymnasium)


This modern technique class is somatic-based within a traditional technical structure. A large emphasis is on exploring ways to recycle energy, understand core and distal initiation points, increase awareness of internal lines of energy, and the purpose/function of anatomically sound alignment choices. We will concentrate on skeletal initiations, floor work, musicality, and utilizing a sense of fluidity and radiation through various explorations of somatic principles. Compound rhythmic patterns and performance qualities will be investigated simultaneously with your technical investigations.
