FULL – 5 spots per day for drop-ins
This class explores the increasing between the first natural movement of breathing and the complex high physicality using speed, rhythm and coordination. It aims to understand how to use the minimum effort to have a maximal result of our body vocabulary, and how to use the floor and the gravity to help us transform it and direct our energy efficiently. The fast body weight shifting that will be proposed to the dancers will increase their understanding of how to free themselves without loosing the consciousness of space and rhythm. The class is dynamically increasing, aiming at different scales of quality between broad and fluid movements and springiness.
