Technique

class:

Cunningham based contemporary technique class (1h 30)

An holistic approach to developing the body as an expressive instrument, ​focusing on dynamics, space and travel. The intense class stimulates the ​cardiovascular system by combining core strengthening Cunningham ​elements, resistance work and stamina exercises. Focus is also placed on the ​anatomy of movement, articulation of the body and it's own natural energy ​flow to promote efficient use of energy and breath. The class leads to ​developing the core as the central pivot of the body gives a dancer more body ​balance and therefore a better symmetry and control.

Body conditioning and awareness for dance (1h 30)

Motor movements specifically developed for dance. Learn to strengthen the ​body as a whole, with focus on developing correct muscles, body alignment ​and symmetry. Developing the core as the central pivot of the body gives a ​dancer more body balance and therefore a better symmetry and control.

Embodied ​Motion:

Embodied Motion: Exploring Space, Self, and Partnership (2h)

This class is centered around learning the significance of correct preparation ​and self-awareness, followed by their integration into partner-based ​activities.
