Class Description: my class develops from plain and pure body-work / work-out exercises, through short floor- and standing combinations into more complex choreographic sequences. some of the basic principles which are constantly worked with are: finding, strengthening and shifting the center, being on and off balance, resting and exploding into space, moving expansively and taking risks. the class is very physical, energetic and athletic but it also focuses on increasing the physical awareness in order to work within a frame in which one can push his individual limits but keep the body safe. it's an essential part of the class to discover and make full use of the logic that underlies every movement phrase. based on that understanding i want to encourage the participants to take their own decisions, so they can find their own way of playing with quality, musicality and dynamics and strengthen their individual expression as a performer.
