Vanessa Abreu’s class is for experienced / professional dancers (as with all Morning Classes) while accommodating for a wide range of abilities. There is an internal focus throughout the session, starting with the utility of the breath, which serves as a central through line during the class.

The session will allow for a sense of arrival and check-in with one’s body / mind. It draws from somatic and yogic approaches, and then will move into freer, more open, and energetic explorations within space. Maps will be drawn with anchor points allowing space for improvisation.

The class will culminate in more structured scores, followed by phrase work.
