"Simpson reinvents classical ballet and modern dance aesthetics with a sleek and sexy edge. Ultimately, her sleek style transcends confining categories." -SF Guardian


Edgy, sleek, and sexy, each moment generates fresh perspectives from intermingling diverse dancers in raw situations- aptly described as“emotional and kinetic changes.” (San Francisco Bay Guardian)

Classes are designed to cultivate a movement vocabulary derived from sources included but not limited to dance practices utilizing modern, ballet, hip-hop, structured improvisation, and contemporary. Students will bring their technical toolbox to participate in a warm-up and dynamic creative process. This workshop increases the curiosity for Contemporary Dance, while building kinesthetic awareness.
