About the event



Ground Grooves is a floorwork class emphasizing continuous and fluid movement from a methodical and safe approach. Designed for dancers with previous floorwork experience of any style, this fast-paced workshop emphasizes movement quality and execution through longer sequences of movement.

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

10.15-11.35am - Warm-up + across-the-floor progressions culminate in floorwork phrases that emphasize qualitative integration of standing work

11.45-12.45pm - Lab: Discussing + embodying our most utilized movement concepts

12.45-1.30pm - Lunch

1.30-2.45 - Phrasework: Long choreographic sequences focused on integrating floorwork and standing work as well as challenging skills workshopped in the Lab
