I'm a fan of hard work. The class is physical. We will sweat and we will dance and all of this to lovely music! My class is rooted in the pleasure of full dancing and the sensations we feel in our body and emotions when we move. Wether it's through a phrase we dance all together moving as one body through the space, or wether it's through working on a handstand, or losing ourselves to the pulse of the music as if we were in a party. My class wants to create those situations where we just feel great and that we are dancing fully. Just like when we take a walk in the forest and breathing in fresh air, it feels good. That's why we do it.
I teach dance technique through a combination of set material and open material with a very specific technical score/limitation behind it.
Things i am passionate about at the moment and i want to share with you:
-work on handstands and more dynamic acrobatic material
-how to find space and length in the body through conscious alignment
-how to increase awareness by working on technical tasks through open material
-improving coordination through dynamic coordination drills
-moving with ease, speed & lightness
- playing with dynamics ( performing score )
- how to express things to others with our dance ( performing score )
I am interested in working towards a free and strong and highly aware body, energetic, playful, sparkly and yet grounded.
Come and feel good! Come and sweat! Come and join the dance!
