Contemporary Technique: Drawing from a broad       
 foundation of Modern, Post-Modern, Jazz,  
 Classical and Africanist dance training, jhon  
 teaches movement focused classes that 
 emphasize the connection between rhythm/
 musicality and technical mechanics. Fusing a 
 highly energetic and physical vocabulary. These 
 classes are designed to increase kinesthetic and 
 technical strength while expanding the dancer’s 
 physical intelligence. Individuals are encouraged 
 to develop a wide range of skills in instinctive and 
 technical movement performance. 


                                                                                                                Class Offerings and Descriptions:


 Contemporary Movement Laboratory (CML): CML class sessions explore the art and function of sensation-based  
 improvisation and authentic movement practices, while addressing their application in performance and 
 movement cultivation. Beginning with the philosophy that every dancing body has a specific dance history, 
 participants are instructed to start at their foundation. Similar to the work experienced through GaGa Technique, 
 TITOYAYA, and the Forsythe Technologies, these sessions seek a marriage between somatic philosophy and the 
 western tradition in technical/classical dance technique. With a focus on understanding the polarity between 
 presence and projection, each class session will challenge the individual’s stamina in focus and awareness of their 
 own movement choices/ intentions and facilitate the development of a performance presence that is self aware 
 without judgment.
