I have joined the class “Studio Workshop in Modern I” by Prof. Loretta Livingston and TA Gunta Liepina. With the aim of gaining a better understanding of dance practice for designing tools that can work for the project from that perspective, I am studying the basics of modern dance in a practice-based approach.
The class includes principles of placement and rhythmic sequences of movement, providing flexibility and strength as a foundation for freedom of expression through principles of modern tradition developed from Graham, Humphrey, and Wigman. This is being particularly useful for a better understating of the framework in terms of a taxonomy of relations between dance and moods . The class meets twice a week.
