Thank you to everyone who joined last week for Open Rehearsal & Conversations with Christopher. We welcomed 28 people and raised $385 in donations.

"We were totally blown away by the rehearsal, not having seen one before --- and when they danced to the music it was truly moving." - Carl, audience member

Be sure to purchase your tickets to the show, June 19 - 23. It'll be a sellout!

Jessica’s class is a culmination of her studies in classical modern and contemporary techniques. Her work as a functional movement trainer is infused in her teaching, prioritizing safety, proper form and alignment. She explores movement that can be physically vigorous, but also supple and fluid. Musicality and rhythm are vital elements and Jessica loves creating an energizing and motivating vibe through her playlists. Class will begin with a thorough full-body warmup moving in and out of the floor, progress to standing sequences, and will build to an expansive phrase. Jessica creates an inclusive environment where we can harvest individual expression and joyful movement.
