Register at odc.dance. To Live Stream: 1) Download Zoom.Us app on your desktop/laptop or mobile device, create an account and and use your name that matches MindBody when logging in. 2) 15 minutes before class starts you will receive an email for a link to our ZOOM conference call from one of our Front Desk staff. Kristin’s class is a highly physical and rigorous exploration of contemporary technique. Class will begin with a meditative body scan and improvisation exercises; first finding articulation of the spine, pelvis, and torso bringing focus to the alignment of the body, then moving with ease and dynamic energy. Large energetic phrase work will have a constant play with gravity; going in and out of the floor, upside down and traveling though the space with fierce abandonment.

Kristin’s Contemporary class begins with a meditative body scan to bring awareness to your physical anatomy and to sense how your body feels in the moment. Next, Kristin will guide you through improvisation exercises that are designed to familiarize yourself with your body in motion. You will explore articulation of the spine, pelvis, and torso, all while finding momentum through movement. Class will progress into large energetic phrases that integrate the whole body. Kristin’s approach learning technique is focused on finding alignment of the body, then moving with ease and dynamic energy. Her classes are in constant play with gravity; moving in and out of the floor, going upside down and traveling through the space with fierce abandonment. Kristin believes that class builds a strong community where you can learn, sweat, and dance it out together. Class is typically danced barefoot.
