Class with Joel

My class weaves together a smorgasbord of influences from Cunningham, Release, Gaga  and contact improvisation. We locate our anatomy, activate a strong core and manipulate our weight in space. We explore the possibilities on the edges of our balance, that delicious grey area between stability and falling.
