Exercises in the center and across the floor will conclude in a longer phrase of movement in which dancers will continue to recognize their individuality. Music of various genres and eras will keep the class energized and engaged. . Monday, 6:15-7:45 PM . Dancers ages 16 and up welcome. $15 at the door

“Global Water Dances” is a really special collaboration between dancers, musicians, artists, and activists around the world in an effort to engage our community in discussion about issues of water quality and conservation. We’re excited that our artistic director Rachael Inman is leading our local contribution to this global project again this year, and several of our faculty members are participating. The event will take place at the Cahaba River Walk Park in Mountain Brook this Saturday, June 15th, at 3pm. Go check it out! #globalwaterdances2019 #globalwaterdances

Join us Monday, June 10 for class with Sarah Barry, Chair of the Department of Theatre and Dance at The University of Alabama. Rooted in Laban/Bartenieff movement principles, Monday’s class will focus on the use of breath and connecting our breath to moving fully through the body and space. We will link elements of both the function and expression of breath and find ways to use breath to initiate movement and play with movement quality. Come ready for floor work, lots of traveling, and personalized invention and execution. . Monday, 6:15-7:45 PM . Dancers ages 16 and up welcome. $15/drop-in basis . Coming up... . June 17 | Alisa McCool | Adjunct, Samford University . June 24 | Mary Margaret Scalici | Birmingham Dance Artist and BASI Pilates Instructor at Alabama Ballet, ASFA
