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.

Schedule / Day 1 + 2

10.15-11.45am - Warm-up + across-the-floor progressions culminate in floorwork phrases that emphasize qualitative integration of standing work
