Rachel Tavernier Teaches Dunham Technique

Tavernier and student Dianna Anderson demonstrate a barre exercise that both stretches and strengthens the hamstrings and spine, and prepares dancers for more intense contractions and undulations. While this sequence is central to basic Dunham Technique, it can easily be transposed into a modern or contemporary class warm-up, since it activates the core and back muscles and challenges students' balance.

#1 Terminology
 
I studied many years of Dunham technique in the 1970's, and we always called this "drop and lift." I was thrown when I saw it called "Fall and Recovery," because this is the terminology used to describe the central concept in Humphrey-Weidman modern dance technique.
