Take a Free Class With Dance Magazine January Cover Star Keerati Jinakunwiphat

Between her distinctive presence as a dancer in Kyle Abraham's A.I.M and her own creative vision as a choreographer, Keerati Jinakunwiphat was a natural fit for Dance Magazine's "25 to Watch" list this year.

Now, you can take a free online class with the cover star of Dance Magazine's January issue through Dance Media Live! On February 11, at 12 pm ET, Jinakunwiphat will teach a 45-minute movement class, followed by a short Q&A with participants.

Her class will begin with combinations using the floor to discover a sense of groundedness, tactility and mobility, and to start playing with shifts of weight. As the class continues, movement will grow bigger as you explore different planes. Throughout her teaching, Jinakunwiphat focuses on how dancers can stay present as they take up space.
