Synetic Technique

Mondays 7:00pm – 8:30pm
FALL: Sept 8 >> Nov 29
SPRING: Jan 26 >> April 26

$270

Synetic Technique is a highly specialized class that focuses on developing a heightened sense of body awareness and corporeal expression through a series of inter-disciplinary physical vocabularies.  Stemming from the rigorous training our Synetic company members endure, this class breaks down this unique synthesis of techniques, making them approachable and fun for the students as they navigate how to control their bodies in a way never thought possible before.  From a head-to-toe breakdown of isolation work students then progress to a more demanding series of exercises that develop plasticity, acceleration, and coordination.  Body waves, footwork, pantomime, ballet and gymnastics are just a few examples of the various disciplines explored.  Connecting the mind to the body, this class creates a capable and highly adaptable physical awareness boosting confidence and leaving the student with a skill set taught nowhere else, like nowhere else.

Shintaido- Tuesdays, 6:00pm

Instructor: Lee Ordeman

Shintaido is a physical discipline with deep roots in traditional Japanese martial arts. It is popular among people of all ages and backgrounds as a way of staying fit and improving physical and mental health. It helps cultivate calm and awareness and an open and humane heart. It especially attracts health professionals, educators, performing artists and students. Shintaido has wide appeal, attracting physically active people as well as those who have long considered themselves un-athletic or out of shape.

Classes feature ample stretching, conditioning and practice of kata (classical forms) and kumite (partner practice), and these practices provide a healthful and rigorous way to develop general movement skills with broad application. Style and content of classes, or keiko, can vary greatly, ranging from quietly meditative movements to boisterously expressive ones. Students also develop techniques for relaxation, meditation and individual practice.
