Up for more of a challenge? These fast-paced classes are for more experienced students with previous training in contemporary dance. If you have studied dance at the high school or post-secondary level, this class is for you. The emphasis is on building movement sequences which will stretch your potential and versatility. This class expands on the Graham technique skills, to more intricate and advanced floorwork, standing work, and complex movement phrases, incorporating imagery, musicality, and drama.

Single class drop-ins and class cards are available for this class only. Please read more about Fees & Registration for details.

As a very mature student, I appreciate Wendy Chiles’ rare teacher’s gift of giving you a correction and making you feel good about it. She does not push, she coaxes. I’ve been attending for decades. She knows her students’ limits, she gets our strengths. Her approach is totally relaxed but rigorous, tough but always constructive. And fun. Afterwards, I feel totally reinvented. – James Polk
