Class decription

Robyn’s class is inspired by a mixture of contemporary techniques that she has picked up throughout her own training. Expect to start with a guided warm up and improvisation that leads into floor work crossings, gradually growing in complexity. There will be a focus on the physicality of movement through coordination, proprioception, flow and control. The class will finish with some energetic traveling sequences that will see us flying across the room and leave us feeling sweaty and fulfilled.
