About

The class focuses on the dancer’s connection with/to the floor. We will work with simple movement sequences and exercises, which will help us focus on breathing, awareness, and functionality of the body and movement. This will allow us to go to the floor, move there freely, and to rise back to the vertical as efficiently and effortlessly as possible. We will focus our attention on finding pleasure in movement, on using the centre and how to extend the limbs out of it, on correct alignment and use of the body for efficient movement, as well as on the awareness of spirals in the body and in space.
