UPCOMING EVENTS & NEWS
OPEN CLASS @ LED
1420 W. Grove St., Boise, ID 83712
Class will begin with a series of tasks meant to generate heat. Through technical, strength-building, and improvisational exercises, we will investigate the body’s relationship with gravity. This study will progress into exercises that move across the space, developing the mechanisms for traveling, floorwork, and larger motions. The class will culminate in a phrase that combines the earlier elements. Movement will explore weight, suspension, and dynamics.
