Class Description
The classes integrate elements from a variety of different, but complimentary movement techniques/methods. Elements from floorwork and gymnastics are used in the class to awaken the use of body weight, momentum, strength and stamina. Other components influenced by gaga, martial arts and hiphop focus more on image based movement qualities, sharpness, efficiency, precision and on body awareness. The last element involves isolation exercises – alone and with a partner. The classes include coordination games that challenge the body and mind; Guided improvisations, that aim at opening channels to experience physical engagement through senses and states of mind; and vice versa. Every class ends by learning a movement phrase that incorporates all the elements that have been worked on; accompanied by some nice music, placing emphasis on the importance of playfulness and joy of performing in our daily training for individual creativity.
