Master Class with Emily Schoen!

Master Class with Emily Schoen!

Come and dance with Emily Schoen on May 23, 2017 from 7:30-9PM! $35 for the class or 2 hours on your card!

Emily Schoen approaches class as an exploration of one’s dancing self and a training platform for growth. The class begins simply to focus the mind, lubricate the body, and get the blood flowing. Exercises progress in both complexity and pace as the class continues, working up to a freeing and expansive clip. Emily loves to challenge the dancer’s mind, not by presenting unattainable phrasework, but by looking at phrasework through varied perspectives. This class is a warm, safe zone where dancers can enjoy a sense of community while learning and working. Though studio time is focused and productive, it is also fun because Emily keeps the mood light. Class will leave you feeling mentally and physically fulfilled. Come play!
