Join CULTIVATE trainees and Anna Pinault for a dance class at TU Dance Center for Intermediate/ Advanced dancers. Anna’s Contemporary Floorwork class focuses on moving in and out of the floor with fluidity and expressivity. After a warmup and floor-based drills across the space, you’ll learn choreography that incorporates highly physical contemporary movement with fluid and grounded floorwork movement, in order to practice transitioning between the two. (Knee pads are recommended.) This class is for intermedia/advanced dancers.

Raised in Minnesota, Anna Pinault worked as a dance artist and educator in New York City for nearly a decade. In 2022, she landed back in the Twin Cities once again to pursue the next season of her creative work. Anna’s most recent work includes Ashwini Ramaswamy’s Invisible Cities, TU Dance Company’s The Three Women Project, and projects with Joe Chvala’s Flying Foot Forum, Rovaco Dance Company, and the Des Moines Metro Opera. Her work as an educator has included Dance Theatre of Harlem, The Neighborhood Playhouse, Daya Yoga Studio, the NYC Public School System, Zenon Dance School, Hothouse Minneapolis, and The School at TU Dance Center, among others. Anna also practices Thai Bodywork, and is studying for her MS in Human Movement Science. Her passion for bodily education spills into both her teaching and artistic work. Her current choreographic creations explore the creation of imagery and architecture by transposing rhythm and other musical languages onto the body. Her powerful energy is unique in its ability to quickly morph from style to style, all while maintaining a supple articulation and water-like quality. (www.annapinault.com,
