Class Description

EPlay practice is a professional class focused mainly on floorwork technique, combined with other contemporary dance techniques and body practices I have had 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 with movement sequences on the floor and standing, mind and body will have 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 that connects the learned sequences to energy, dynamics, satisfaction through our dancing and sharing with the group.
