Open Modern Class (Begins Oct. 1, 2018) 

Mondays 6:30-8pm at The Florida Ballet

In partnership with the Florida Ballet, JDT offers an open Modern Dance Class taught by a rotating group of JDT's leadership and founding dancers Monday evenings at The Florida Ballet located in Downtown Jacksonville. 

Progressing through long sequences of movement that build on the principles of modern techniques and somatic practices, this open modern class will explore the nature of tension which naturally exists within and around our bodies. This contemporary modern dance class challenges dancers to push past their personal barriers of facility, expectation, and technique in order to enjoy their true potential for movement. Simonson, Limon and Post-Modern Release techniques frame the primary focus on the integration of performance and technique, and correct/articulate body placement/anatomical alignment. This class will employ elements of improvisation and composition to support whole body integration and the expression of personal artistry.
