Masterclass with A.I.M’s Jae Neal

In association with
Mixed Repertory Program by A.I.M

Classes taught by A.I.M emphasize four of the company’s core movement values: exploration, musicality, abandonment and intuition. The opening warm-up sequence focuses on the fluidity of the spine, articulation, and core body strengthening; and then builds up to challenging, creative and invigorating phrase work. Students experience a personalized postmodern movement vocabulary full of intricate gestures and signature A.I.M moves. 

Skill Level

This class is intended for intermediate dancers and choreographers. Participants should have a minimum of 2 years of prior dance training.

Dress so you can move freely and have appropriate foot wear or bare feet.
