Advanced Contemporary Modern Concepts


11AM – 12:30PM


This is an ongoing class for advanced dancers. We move from a place of play and curiosity in this 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.


Class is by donation ($10 suggested) and cash/check donations are also accepted in-person at the door. Your donation supports DISCO RIOT’s mission to create a more collaborative movement-based arts scene in San Diego. No need to register – we’ll see you there!
