Professional Class: Robert Clark
Robert's class is both technical and playful, moving fluidly between set, form-based exercises and improvisation tasks. The class begins with exercises that develop awareness and articulate the connections of the body before building spatially and in intensity, towards extended phrase work and partner combinations.
