The class is focused mainly on floorwork technique combined with other contemporary dance techniques and body practice I have met during my education and dance career. It is structured in two main directions: technique and work on choreographic material. The training starts with a warm-up and body preparation and the study of movement mechanics. Alternating improvisation tasks, to movement sequences on the floor and standing, mind and body will get the chance to work on coordination, stamina, development of kinetic awareness, speed, musicality, softness, precision, and attention to details. Further on we will continue introducing more complicated movement vocabulary which will guide the group in a playground area to connect the sequences learned to energy, dynamics, satisfaction through our dancing and sharing with the group.
