Company & Technique Classes

Ms. Monk emphasizes choreographic sensibilities, musicality, expression and performance. She brings her background in Mitzvah technique and principles in athletic centering and power for a rigourous morning class, ideal for any professional or emerging dancer.Classes begin with simple motifs that introduce movement ideas and warm up the body and mind, and move through relatively more complex patterns. Choroegraphed phrases explore the elements of technical vocabulary in a contemporary aesthetic, emphasizing the dancers use of flow,  attack, precision and release.

Weekday morning class is offered during the weeks where we hold our programs of the Dance Action Lab, the Annual Alberta Dance Festival’s Creative Intensive Program and new in 2017-2018, a spring production which will be announced in September. While class is a requirement for particpants of those programs, classes are open to Calgary’s full dance community, including emerging and senior dancers.

Class times vary from 1 hour to 1½ hours. They can be purchased in advance through Brown Paper Tickets or as a drop-in fee at the studio.
