Contemporary Technique by Ian Robinson and Rachael Osborne (former dancers with the Batsheva Dance Company)


We will give space to indulge our curiosity about shaping and coloring movement, inside and out. We will sweat. We will visit places of effort and research our connection to pleasure, as we explore the experience of dance and delve into how our environment both affects and infects us.
