Liquid Strength
Christal Brown’s “Liquid Strength" (A technique laboratory focused on moving, intention, and analyzation) combines the focus and intention of a meditative practice with a series of exercises designed to train the body in articulate expression as well as athletic execution ; Brown's class focuses on developing the total artist.  Exercises will focus on alignment, torso and spinal flexibility, clarity of focus, upper body strength, lower body strength, and abdominal control.  Working to transform philosophical notions of being into movement explorations, students will discover intersections between technique and performance : yielding transference.
