Class Description: Kate's class will take a playful approach to experimenting with effort and ease, exploring both small nuance and grand expansiveness. With emphases on floor work, subtlety, risk-taking, spinal articulation and precise points of initiation, we will propel our bodies juicily through space We will sweat, think, dance big (and small) and generate joy!
