EATING THE SPACE
This contemporary class is structured combining technique and big organic movements. We will work on deep pliés and gravity evolving into fluent, grounded and honest movement. The class starts with a mix of releasing tension and strengthening the muscles to prepare our bodies for dancing. After we will go into set exercises, followed by energetic diagonals across the floor with jumps, floor work or improvisations. The class ends with a short choreography. We will explore how to release and catch again the movement, how to use global movements coming from outside into our center and out again.
We will play with rhythm and precision a long with continuous, vide shapes traveling through the space. Spirals and suspensions will meet quick feet and beautiful lines. Let’s get some groove into our technique! Let’s feel good in our bodies! Come hungry and EAT THE SPACE with me.
