Day Two – Jumping In

(Day 2 0f 7)

Our AXIS website is down ( HELP!) but the Summer Intensive classes are in full swing! Here is a short report from day 2 of 7.

The day started with our AXIS technique classes taught by Emily & Juliana. They introduced a warm-up phrase that we will be building on throughout the week.

After lunch Joel & Sonsheree lead an improv class focussing on shapes within our own bodies and in relationship to others and space.

For the comp part of the class Judy and Sebastian taught the dancers a section from “The Narrowing”. After that they were paired up in trios and asked to manipulate the phrase with elements of timing, facing, repetition, canon & unison.

I’m looking forward to the trios they will be creating throughout the week.
