About Jamie’s class:
My modern class is informed by the style & format of Katie Elliott’s 3rd Law Dance/Theater company class as well as my previous mentors. We begin by warming up the body and mind in linear and nonlinear pathways to prepare for full body movement later in class. We ground our weight to connect with gravity as well as incorporating elements from ballet technique for when we are asked to work against it. We explore energy moving outwards from our center in all directions at all times in order to make a never-ending/continuous mark in space.  There is always room for personal interpretation as the class acts as an outline in order to allow each body to reach new limits, make choices and speak through movement.
