Contemporary Class with Gabbie Cook
February 18 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Morning Class with Gabbie Cook brought to you by Moving Through Acrobatics!
These classes will focus on the fundamental techniques for release, floorwork and acro dance. We will build on these ideas and apply them to improvisation and moving together.
You will be given tools to find more fluidity, softness and momentum, as well as encouraged to develop your individual style. One of the key aims is that everyone has lots of fun and goes away with something exciting to apply to their practice!
Gabbie has been teaching for several years and appreciates that every body is different and people learn and move in different ways. The classes will be paced appropriately for the group, as well as challenging enough to push everyone just a little out of their comfort zone – because that is when the fun starts!
