Luciterra Format Classes

____________

What Style of Dance is This? Read more here

Luciterra's weekly classes are offered in a progressive, four-level format. Our range of classes fits every experience level, from seasoned performer to absolute beginner! Each class begins with warm-up that integrates yoga and Pilates exercises which is followed by technique drilling and repertory.

The aim of our classes is to focus on strong technique and dynamic choreography while exploring histories and socio-cultural implications of the dance forms that have contributed to our practice. Discussion and thoughtful consideration of the topics of conscientious cultural fusion and socially-engaged dance performances is strongly encouraged in every level of our school.

Luciterra offers a unique multi-instructor format, which means that all classes are taught by multiple instructors. Our students benefit from exposure to diverse teaching approaches and, periodically, receive additional support from a secondary instructor. In such classes, the “lead” instructor teaches while the “support” instructor is available to provide personalized modifications and feedback. We believe that this approach offers our students an in-depth and dynamic learning experience.
Classes start on time, so please arrive 5-10 minutes before the posted start time. Please arrive 15 minutes early on the first day of each session and when dropping-in, so that we have time to process your payment and say hello! Please bring a water bottle, a yoga mat, and dress in comfortable and supportive clothing.

RUBY

Ruby is Luciterra’s introductory-level class. In Ruby you will begin learning the foundation of the Luciterra format including muscular isolations, full body movement and working with space. In this level, you will pay close attention to developing strong, safe dance posture.

Classes include mini-lectures, technique, and a choreography which you will learn throughout the session and are welcome to perform in the end-of-session showcase. Whether you are returning to dance, seeking a new dance practice, or taking part in your very first dance class, Ruby will provide you with a supportive and fun learning environment!
