Dance Limerick presents a new series of morning classes here in our studio in John's Square. Each month a new dance artist will host Wednesday morning classes suitable for professional dance artists and advanced students.
First up we're delighted to welcome Lisa McLoughlin to lead our first set of classes on 4, 11 & 18 December at 10- 11.30am. Classes are €7 or free for Studio Friend subscribers.
About Lisa's Class
Lisa’s class will begin with vinyasa yoga and somatic exercises to get deeply warm on these dark winter mornings. Following this, participants will use both improvisation and structured sequences to engage all of the body into movement and finally into a dynamic movement phrase.
