Liberated Movement w/ Lauren Pellettieri ***New location for this series! Arts on Site, Studio 4F 12 St Marks Pl, New York, NY 10003

Details

Liberated Movement’s signature class is a meditative movement class series that integrates breath work, dynamic stretch, Qi Gong, cardio dance, free movement and meditation, all to improve mood and sense of well-being. Class alternates between “yin” and “yang” movements to create a sense of calm and ease while also waking up your muscles and increasing heart rate. By working body and mind together to bring presence and attention to what you are doing in the moment, we are able to stretch ourselves strong, lower chance of injury, and improve the quality and feeling of your movement. If you want to boost your energy, relax your mind, and feel more alive, then this class is for you! Anyone is welcome and encouraged to attend; no prior dance/movement experience necessary. Wear any comfortable clothing with bare feet or sneakers. ***This class series will take place at Arts on Site 6:00-7:00pm on Sundays 4/23/17, and 4/30/17**

Contemporary w/ Megan Pollard

Details

This class blends lyrical techniques with modern accents and contemporary style. Megan’s warm up focuses on strengthening techniques using exercises inspired by ballet, Horton and jazz, followed by deep, relaxing stretches. Her routines move quickly and incorporate weight shifting, articulated changes between hard and soft movement, deep contractions and accented movements where you connect with the music and can throw in your own style. This class keeps you moving and explores the connection with your body through choreography. *Bare feet suggested

Hip Hop Fusion w/ Janine Micheletti

Details

Janine’s class is built to not only learn steps but to understand and enjoy the freedom of street specific styles. Janine starts out with a warm up consisting of various grooves, isolations, stretching, and core strengthening exercises. She then moves into a combination that will have a focus for that class, whether it be a feeling she wants conveyed or to drill steps to develop your skills as a street style dancer. She hopes to instill an integrity of movement in a supportive and open atmosphere.
