The class

The class connects between creativity and structured exercises/tasks in the dancer’s work. It is based upon my experience with Ohad Naharin’s method and many other ideas, concepts, exercises from my education, personal life and career and philosophy as well. The aim is to enrich and improve the intuitive experience of the dancer, using the body’s "memory" in creating a movement that leaves "new" traces of memories in space, and practicing how to identify them and how to relate to them. During the class I speak constantly in order to structure exercises, giving clear instructions for improvisation, and stamina exercises for strengthening. The class has no official break. The challenge of the class is to be in a constant state of body and mind connection, to elaborate our own abilities and to be available for multitasking.
