Contemporary / Flowability and physicality

The class usually begins with a floor work focusing on weight, availability and tonicity. Then a series of technical standing exercises follows, based on feet anchorage, center of gravity and alignment awareness and use, movement quality, to come up to a travelling spatial body, both wide and organic, sharp and released.

Floorwork / Ground connection and horizontal movement

The class evolves with continuous crossings deployed around simple elements that combine and complexize progressively. By exploring instinctive patterns and natural momentum, by using weight, spirals, body supports and breathing, we will seek to develop a flowing ground connection through different speeds and dynamics. Comfortable covering clothes required.
