This unique Contemporary dance class is both creative and somatic. Each class includes technical skills and creative opportunities. Imagery and anatomical cues propel our movement and understanding of our bodies. The movement vocabularly comes from teacher Loren Groenendaal's choreographic interests connected to her work with Vervet Dance. The movement is contemporary with influences from Modern Dance, Release Technique, Bartenieff Fundamentals, Developmental Movement, Laban Movement Analysis, and sometimes Hip Hop and classical Balinese Dance. This class provides opportunities for understanding of your body, building coordination, harnessing your strength, moving more ease-fully, learning movement from others, and exploring one's own movement signature and interests This class often includes working on the floor, and it is recommended to wear clothes that cover shoulders and knees for comfort while moving. This class is geared towards adults, but teens with dance training and focus may join. This class is open to all genders. In this Fall 2 Session we will focus on finding internal motors for our movement (breath, fluids, organs) and moving like water and moving with our water and watery forces for movement that is organic and smooth, but also surprising and dynamic. This one and half hour class happens Tuesdays 6:30-8:00pm from November 13 to December 11 for this fall 2 session running for 5 weeks. We will have a winter break and then cancontinuing with the Winter session,...

Pop Up Contemporary Dance Class! Come learn the art of Contemporary Dance and bring a first time friend for FREE!!! Contemporary dance is a genre of dance performance that includes elements of classical, modern, jazz styles, and various other dance styles. In terms of the focus of its technique, contemporary dance tends to combine the strong but controlled legwork of ballet with modern that stresses on torso. It also employs contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristics of modern dance. Unpredictable changes in rhythm, speed, and direction are often used, as well. Additionally, contemporary dance sometimes incorporates elements of non-western dance cultures, such as elements from African dance including bent knees, or movements from the Japanese contemporary dance, Butoh.

Juxtaposing raw, wild, and uncommon original 7-inch vinyl sides by unsung artists on the beat for today’s dance floor, Jonathan Toubin and his New York Night Train party machine’s persistent nightly work has carved out a unique space in contemporary culture and influenced scores of DJs and parties everywhere. While best known for throwing the world’s most popular and prolific soul party, the Soul Clap and Dance-Off, and NYC’s biggest and longest-running weekly rock’n’roll dance, Shakin’ All Over Under Sideways Down!, he’s also spent the last decade turning over 2000 gigs at hundreds of nightclubs, art spaces, all-ages warehouses, afterhours, rock concerts, and dozens of major music festivals on five continents – from Bonnaroo to Benicassim, from Tasmania to Tel Aviv. Meanwhile, back in the States, reimagining the map, creating its own continental circuit for a new demographic, and hitting it hard over a decade, Thee Clap broke barriers coast to coast to become America’s only touring 21st Century soul shindig. The low-fi spectacle is also the first DJ party with its own entire night at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night’s Swing and the first DJ party with an entire night of official South By Southwest showcases - and has remained the conference’s official closing party for six years. New York Night Train’s Soul Proprietor is also the first 45 DJ with Burger Records cassettes and the first living DJ with compilations on the legendary Norton Records - with five Souvenirs of the...
