Jee Eun Ahn, Assistant Professor
Texas A&M International University
This class challenges dancers to find both their mind and body awareness, and also their potential forbreaking their boundaries. The class will begin by focusing on breathing and utilizing the floor which will allow dancers to investigate initiating body parts and efficient muscularity in the body. By continuing seamless flooring and standing phrases, dancers will learn the relationship and connection between their bodies and ground. Moving to large traveling phrases, the dancers will be allowed to play with given structure, and they also experience to find their ownvoice and artistry. The presenter will use various techniques and approaches and flexibly adjust depending on dancer’s needs in class.
