Class description:
This class explores the interconnections between contemporary dance/ floorwork, improvisation, embodied practices, and partner work.
By beginning with a grounding warm-up, we establish a shared practice connecting to the floor, enhancing body awareness and stability.
As limits create freedom, this class aims to offer knowledge of contemporary dance training as a structure that calls to be broken and rearranged playfully through improvisation. We integrate movement qualities into floorwork phrases and gradually introduce dynamic partner work, fostering trust in a supportive environment.
Collaboratively, we aim to create and hold a safe space where we can all explore, play, surprise ourselves and grow together.
