Pitcher’s modern classes make space to experience pure delight through rigorous practice. Dancers are challenged to absorb new movements quickly and balance artistic nuance with technical prowess. Articulate and available is the goal. Dancing bodies find a neutral readiness through a series of simple, accumulating sequences. In that heightened awareness, they drive furious pathways through space – into and out of the floor, on and off center – with sultry sensuousness. This work is seeped with ideas from applied kinesiology, Bartenieff Fundamentals, Laban effort/shape and Klein Technique.
