Contemporary Workshop with Lynn Peterson/SYREN Dance Co

Saturday, September 14th | 10:30am-12pm | $17 or card punch, $14/college students & seniors

About the class: Lynn’s modern dance class will emphasize utilizing a strong technical foundation to push, pull, and expand the body’s physicality and stamina. A thorough warm-up built with the desire to “move more” and “talk less” will lead up to phrase work that will require focus toward specificity, musicality, individuality, AND enjoying the ride along the way.
