"Nate is such a nurturing instructor, and he is one of the most efficient instructors I've had at the college."
Nathaniel’s classes focus on the awareness, quality, and growth of one's movement and artistic voice. He guides dancers to access ease and fluidity focusing on spinal manipulation, extremity articulation, core engagement, and shifting of weight.
Nathaniel utilizes classical vocabulary, descriptive imagery, and physical touch as avenues to emphasize correct anatomical alignment to ensure safety and longevity. Thus, at the beginning of every class dancers are asked for their consent to physical touch to respect any and all personal boundaries of the dancers.
He uses levity and humor to elicit community, connection, and joy from the dancers as their bodies are pushed physically throughout the class.
Dancers should expect a well-balanced and satiating warm-up, fluid and technical phrase work, and an emotionally-safe space to lavish in creatively, combined with energetic and vocal support from Nathaniel.
*Nathaniel specializes in teaching contemporary, jazz, Horton-based modern, ballet, and floorwork.*
