Véronique Giasson’s contemporary dance technique class is inspired by classical dance and Pilates principles and aims to work on different movement qualities. Through dynamic, precise exercises presenting musical and coordination challenges, you will be compelled to optimize physical possibilities to develop your virtuosity.

Throughout the class, you will be exploring notions of modulating energy and muscular work, mobilizing joints, oppositions, and movement amplitude within the body and in space.
