Floorwork VOL I DVD


In this video Calen and Chris guide you through their innovative “Floorwork” helping give the Intermediate/Advanced dancer another level of spatial awareness. They break down basic body positions and inform you how to support yourself through the use of your technical training. Then they demonstrate some of their signature steps and variations to add to your vocabulary as a dancer. This all concludes with a step-by-step break-down of four contemporary combinations ranging from jazz, to lyrical, modern, and a playful piece incorporating some fun partnering that illustrate methods to help create seamless transitions on and off the floor.
