Contemporary Modern Dance and Gyrokinesis
with Alexandra Berger
$25 in advance / $30 at the door
Berger’s Modern Technique Class combines a physicality & progression rooted in the technique of Merce Cunningham with the dynamic & energetic principles of the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®. Beginning with exercises that explore movement through the torso, arms, legs, & feet in all possibilities of direction, the class progresses to emphasize athleticism, musicality, & dynamic shift.
ALEXANDRA BERGER is a founding member of Dusan Tynek Theatre, and has also performed with, among others, Pat Catterson, Merce Cunningham (RUG 2007), Douglas Dunn, Matthew Mohr, Roz Newman, Sally Silvers, & Matthew Westerby. She also currently tours with Transcultural Protocol, conceived and directed by Rachel Monosov & Admire Kamudzengerere. In addition to dancing, Alexandra ascribes to the Gyrotonic Expansion System® through the lineage of Juergen Bamberger & Hilary Cartwright, teaching at Fluid Fitness in Manhattan and privately in Manhattan & Brooklyn. Alexandra holds a B.F.A. from The New School.
