*Saturday: 12:30pm-1:50pm

Class Description: Lin's signature CHI Awareness Practice is the foundational technique for Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D). It explores the spaces where Western dance forms including ballet, modern, post-modern and hip-hop meet the impulses of Eastern philosophies, including Taoism and Zen Buddhism.The class focuses on how, through modulation of breath (or "chi", in Mandarin), weight and weightlessness co-exist simultaneously and energy seamlessly transitions among explosive bursts of rapid, expansive phrase work, and absolute stillness. Class begins quietly and gradually builds in complexity, culminating in dynamic phrase work. Kun-Yang’s CHI Awareness workshop is intended for pre-professional and professional dancers, ages 16 and up.

Tuesday-Friday: 10:30am-11:50pm
*Saturday: 12:30pm-1:50pm

Class Description: learn the fundamental movements of House Dance while exploring your freedom of expression through rhythmic sequences and improvisation. Driven by infectious dance/lounge/funk rhythms, this class is aerobic, challenging, and most of all, fun! Hip Hop dance requires students to have the strength and stamina to successfully perform moves. Therefore class includes upper and lower body conditioning as well as a rigorous warm-up to help prepare students for more intense movements. Classes will encourage students to step outside of the box by bringing their own individual style and personality to the movements. Great for beginners, this class breaks down basic steps (like jacking, skating, chase, salsa hop, sidewalk, stomp, and shuffle step) to build a solid foundation that will allow students to move, groove, and freestyle to the music.

This class is intended for individuals ages 14 & up

Cost: $12 Students, Professionals and PhiladelphiaDANCE.org Members, $15 regular Drop-In
