What kind of experience does Andrew Pearson offer?

"As an educator, I crossbreed the ideals of a nerdy academic with a sassy socialite.  Operating under the belief that dance is a social activity, I approach teaching as a sharing of ideas, experiences, and passions. I place an equal value on form alongside self-expression, historical context alongside pop-culture, the virtuosic alongside the pedestrian, and hard work alongside enjoyment. I aim to provide tools that will allow movers to find both strength and freedom in their bodies in order to awaken our potential as well as our pleasure in movement.  My class has been influenced by classical and contemporary dance techniques, somatic practices, a background as a fitness instructor and yoga practitioner, and late nights on the dance floor."
