Indulge… Breathe… Move…
Often my class will begin with a yoga-influenced floor warm up, and gradually take the whole body on a tour of the joints, muscles, and bones to prepare it for a physical/intellectual (and, possibly spiritual) experience rooted in weight, momentum, flow, and detail. We will revel in big, dynamic, sincere movement. We will find nuance and clarity. We will dabble in inversion. We will refine our kinetic selves. We will dance like everyone is watching…
Mina Estrada is a ruminator of dance, among other things, and attempts to commit a substantial amount of time to teaching, creating, and facilitating some kind of dance experience for herself and those who care to join. She received her MFA in Dance at Temple University, and her choreography and workshops, which are rooted in contemporary movement concepts and improvisation, have been commissioned by several college, high school and studio dance programs, and professional companies including Spelman College, Grand Valley State University, Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre, and Todd Rosenlieb Dance. She is always in hot pursuit of great storytellers, generous muses, equilibrium, and more time to pet her cats, smile at her husband, and hang out with Mother Nature.
