Robin Stiehm’s class will utilize a diverse range of movement techniques, reflecting her varied dance experiences of over 40 years. Students will find a release into the floor, leading to strong standing movement and finally full-bodied airborne dancing. Class will begin with a basic alignment-focused warm-up, preparing the dancer for phrase work, partnering and improvisation exercises.
