We aim at finding alignment that helps us move efficiently and with clear movement intentions. We also explore the acoustics of our bodies and the space. First we examine anatomical imagery and warm-up our voices. We connect voice and movement in dance phrases. Lastly we have a choice to relate the phrases to architectural elements or other objects in the space.
