Jay: Tue, Thur: 10-11:30am

“Our classes build strength, flexibility, and stamina, as well as developing technical and performance skills. The difference between the two types of classes reflects the different approaches to the same end taken by Barbara and Jay. Barbara’s classes focus on technical training and have a consistent structure from warm-up to movement in space. Jay’s classes are more eclectically varied and include more time for improvisational exploration. The two approaches complement each other and dancers are recommended to take both. Barbara Bourget and Jay Hirabayashi are the Co-producers of the VIDF and the Codirectors of Kokoro Dance. Their teaching is strongly influenced by butoh studies over the last 31 years.Click Here to go directly to registration page
