September 4th,11th, and 18th
Designed to create strength and flexibility of both the body and the mind, Cunningham technique is wonderful for all people, with or without a dance background.
In this series, we will discover increased spatial awareness and rhythmic accuracy. Full of brain teasers, slow and fast movements, this class is light, fun, and playfully challenging. The progression of class is aimed to warm up the body, to stretch and strengthen the muscles, and practice finding new coordination and shapes the body can make. For the most part, this class is low impact and can be quite stationary, however there is a short, light jumping portion as well as some simple traveling across the floor.
Come wearing what you would wear for yoga or to work out.
Drop ins welcome.
COST: $20 per class or $50 per 3 week series payable through Venmo, Zelle, or cash or check.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Lauren Haug grew up in Reno Nevada where she began her dance training in Teddy Bear Dancers. She danced with the Reno Irish Dance company under the direction of Amanda Coulson, trained under the late Lynda Yourth of New York City Ballet, and also participated in productions with the Moscow Ballet and AVA Ballet. Lauren went on to study at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts where she was introduced to Cunningham technique as well as other styles of modern dance. At UNCSA she performed as a soloist in Merce Cunningham’s “Beach Birds,” as well as many other productions, and choreographed her own work. After school she moved to New York City and danced with the Merce Cunningham Trust as well as participated in a fellowship with Lincoln Center Education. After taking a break from teaching dance to pursue hairdressing, Lauren is thrilled to share Cunningham Technique with the Reno Community.
