Embody the Elements
A Contemporary Dance and Choreography Experience
Based off the Inner Journeys ecstatic dance series, we are pleased to welcome Embody The Elements, a contemporary dance and choreography experience. Come join us and experience contemporary dance technique taught by dance artist Kyra Newton with choreography co-created by Kyra Newton and Kylee Dawn. The dance class will take you on a journey through proper alignment of the body and how to move efficiently and expressively through the space. We will explore floor work inspired by capoeira, modern dance techniques, and a variety of movement patterns Kyra has learned throughout her studies in North America. You will increase your physical literacy and learn how to turn, spiral, jump, and explore intricate movement. The dance classes will take the group on a journey through the four elements Earth, Water, Fire, and Air inspired by the elemental series Kylee Dawn has offered over the past seven years. Each month two classes will be dedicated to learning different movement qualities, patterns, and ideas that align with each of the four elements. Choreography inspired by the elements will be offered each month to learn and practice. In June, the first class of the month will be geared towards rehearsing the choreography learned over the session to assure each mover feels confident. For the last class in June, we will open up the space to friends and family, and if you feel called you are invited to perform the dance choreography! We truly value the dance and believe that learning dance choreography can be empowering and uniting.
