Brandon’s class includes a warm-up that promotes mobility as well as stabilization and then moves quickly into phrase work that challenges how dancers shift their weight, find suspension and sequence through movement. Brandon’s class is based on his career in both contemporary and modern dance companies and is designed for dancers to explore joy, space, and feel grounded through their bodies.
