Who is this class for?
Adults

Michael Figueroa teaches classes that vary in structure. Students offer desires/suggestions that shape the content and order of the class to bring about a deeply involved, sweaty, midday moment. The class can consist of improvisation (guided or task-based), contact skills, dense phrase material, floor work, and somatic information. The class is designed in real-time to activate and develop intuitive/instinctive decision-making skills, improve recall of long movement phrases and instill a desire to take risks. Through repetition, we interrogate action and sweat. Figueroa encourages students to treat choreography as improvisation and improvisation as choreography.
