short bio:
Laura is a dance & movement artist, teacher and researcher. Her interests circle around themes that question the way human beings interact with nature, with other living beings, as well as with themselves; sensory perceptions and, environmental influences on the human body. 
Her research and teaching is currently focused on these questions: How can we stay soft yet strong, use our energy wisely and craft listening to our bodies? How can we be honest and humble, practice softness, and still surprise and challenge ourselves?
Laura is also artistically supporting TanzQuelle and Bad Lemons Project  – connects artists, supports exchange in the freelance scene and produces dance works for Jin Lee and Emese Nagy.

class description:
seamless waters
This training exchange combines contemporary tools from floor work, improvisation, partner work, and somatic practices that in the end all come together at last as we are human bodies in motion.
A guided physical warm up will set a common ground to prepare our body and mind.
Through task-based exercises and improvisational propositions we will deepen the connection to the floor (who is inevitably our forever partner) and practice moving softly by letting go of unnecessary tension. 
By exploring anatomical relations in our bodies we can discover endless possibilities to move and find new pathways and articulations within our physical structure. Simultaneously, we will craft our awareness of the 3-dimensional space around us, and how we relate to that space, our body, and others.
