Contemporary Workshops and Classes

Kelsey’s contemporary classes encourage exploration, curiosity and risk-taking with movement. By approaching movement through imagery and sensation, students will be able to push beyond their physical and artistic limits, and find more range in their embodiment of musicality, texture and dynamics. Classes also focus on the relationship between body and space to enable the student to move through space with ease and access their full mobility. Through open-minded exploration, classes empower individuals and foster community.
