About the event



Ground Grooves is a floorwork class emphasizing continuous and fluid movement from a methodical and safe approach. Designed for dancers who are new to floorwork but have some movement experience, this workshop emphasizes building tools and coordination to safely execute fundamental movements. Concepts and choreography are taught at a slower pace.

Working with and without momentum, dancers move through a variety of rolls, slides, inversions, and shoulder rolls focusing on efficiency for longevity, absorbing impact with muscular resistance, and developing qualitative movement textures.


10-10.15am - Introductions + writing

10.15-11.20am - Warm-up + across-the-floor progressions culminate in floorwork phrases that emphasize qualitative integration of standing work

11.30-12.20pm - Lab: Discussing + embodying our most utilized movement concepts

12.20-1pm - Lunch

1-1.50pm - Phrasework: Long choreographic sequences focused on integrating floorwork and standing work as well as more challenging skills workshopped in the Lab

1.50-2pm - Writings + group discussion

Dancers can expect to gain:

-a deeper physical expression of floorwork texture, dynamics, and flow

-increased awareness of weight placement and its effect on spinal freedom and transitional clarity

-tools for developing a lush, spongy movement quality

-control and fluidity moving in and out of the floor

-methods for integrating floorwork principles into standing work

Dancers can expect to experience:

-a relaxed environment where everyone can participate with joy and curiosity

-ample personalized guidance

-connection with other dancers in a non-judgmental learning space

-a concentrated focus on movement concepts to improve efficiency and prevent injury

-low-impact alternatives that build towards more challenging movements

-guided written self-reflection
