Class Description: A movement class designed for all bodies and movers. This class is playful and physical. Together we will access pockets of possibility in our moving bodies and discover our incredible propensity for creativity and physical expression. Yoga, pilates, contemporary dance and guided improvisation all blend together to invite pure pleasure of movement and deep physical embodiment. Come for good music, good sweat and really feel good moves. This class truly is for all bodies, if you are not a dancer please don’t shy away - all that is needed is an open mind and curious body.

Teacher Bio: Sayer grew up in the woods of Massachusetts where she was raised part in the garden and part in her mother’s yoga studio. Movement and nature have been the love language from the get go. Sayer is dancer, performer, choreographer and teacher who has spent the past decade dancing with Pilobolus Dance Theater and Compagnie Marie Chouinard (Montreal, QC.) Sayer holds a BFA from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, a BA from Trinity Laban (UK,) is a 500hr RYT and has been teaching yoga for over 16 years.

About PS21

A vibrant center for contemporary performance in the Hudson Valley, PS21 “presents work that challenges and invites” (The New York Times): adventurous productions by leading and emerging American and international artists in music, dance, and theater, and visionaries creating entirely new genres. On our open-air Pavilion Theater stage, across our expansive, unspoiled grounds, and in the diverse surrounding communities, PS21 cultivates and presents productions that transcend aesthetic boundaries and revitalize existing artistic languages and grammars. Throughout the year, we host developmental residencies for dancers, musicians, actors, and creators of original, even unclassifiable new work. Rooted in community collaboration, PS21’s programming engages creatively with critical global and social issues. It is a mecca for innovative and original artistic voices, a destination for performance that can be experienced nowhere else in the region. PS21’s Pavilion Theater is a green-energy marvel surrounded by 100 acres of unspoiled meadows, trails, and woodlands that are a haven to wildlife and visitors across the region.  Integrated into our unspoiled campus, the theater embodies our commitments to the public: open, inviting, and optimized for their enjoyment and encouraging citizen expression and participation.
