Consultation and mentorship
Drop in classes with SHIFT Director Kelsey Ang
Build strength, flexibility and balance as we flow through movement and dance our hearts out.
These classes encourage exploration, curiosity and risk-taking with movement. By approaching movement through imagery and sensation, the student 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.
