Chicago Dance Supply had the pleasure of joining Lizzie Mackenzie Pontarelli in her Advanced/Professional Contemporary class at Lou Conte Dance Studio at the Hubbard Street Dance Center.
Advanced Contemporary class with Lizzie focuses on three main principles:
• The need for a strong foundation in technique as it relates to body mechanics, and movement concepts such as the transfer of weight through space, weight sharing, varied textures, and dynamics as a part of an artist’s “toolbox”.
• Guiding artists through exercises and tasks enabling them to not only find their personal voices, but to discover their senses of confidence, and pride in what makes them individuals.
• Self-expression in its most authentic and generous state, including researching a variety of options for one to express themselves through movement.
