Fridays with Zaquia

This is a contemporary modern technique class. Go beyond the mechanics, think critically about the tools, make connections, and deepen sensory awareness as a means for honing artistry and dynamics.


Monday Rotating Teachers


Chelsea Zeffiro: Chelsea’s dance class is grounded in a practice toward presence: in our bodies, the space, and with each other. We’ll use sensory exploration (some improvisation) and sequencing practices, shifting awareness through the body and beyond—working from the inside out.



Nicole Oga: Nicole’s all levels class will explore how to move the body efficiently and safely, while embodying various textures and dynamics. Be ready to notice habitual movement patterns and discover new ways of moving.



Joyce Lien Kushner: Joyce’s class draws from various modern and contemporary disciplines, playing with weight, dynamics, textures and gestural movements. We’ll begin with an exploratory improvisational warm-up, then more structured exercises from center to across the floor, and finish with building to a final juicy phrase.



Marty Dorado: Marty’s class will feature modern and contemporary movements mixed with fitness basics. Warm up with simple and dynamic full body dance exercises with fitness equipment, then focus on individual creativity as we workshop, experiment and play with phrasework and improvisation. All fitness equipment will be provided.
