Prime Action
Prime Action is a contemporary form based in African Diasporic and modern dance traditions that work towards enlivening a presence of be-ing in the body. The class incorporates floor work to develop an agile and responsive central column through the activation and articulation of the pelvis, torso (spine/rib cage), neck and head. Standing center focuses on the coordination and strengthening of the extremities with exercises for the hands and arms, legs and feet. Traveling work integrates various elements of floor and center work with progressive movements, phrases, and improvisational explorations. Finally, Phrase work brings together all technical components into choreographic phrase work that encourages mind/body/spirit expressivity.
