I am offering trial classes for anyone interested in embarking on a contemporary dance course. I am already teaching a group of very passionate and dedicated dancers that would be happy to welcome new participants. 2-hour class – one-hour technique, one-hour improvisation and dance composition All classes are programmed for the different group's abilities, dancers and non-dancers. Things that we will do: Contemporary dance technique * Highly physical and energetic. The classes developed from a series of modern and contemporary dance techniques like release technique, floor work and traditional dance vocabulary. They are essential to better understand the mechanics of the body in movement. Classes Focus on awareness on the inner and outer space, change of dynamics and qualities of movements. Repetitions are used to consolidate the knowledge acquired during the session. Improvisation and composition * Very playful session, they stimulate the participant’s creativity to listen to their own body and improving sensorial awareness. Movements are developed by exploration and improvisation tasks to guide students to develop their own a unique way of creating movement materials to use in their personal dance creation. The main aim of the classes is to establish a creative or intimate conversation with the artistic self-embedded in all of us. CI: Contact improvisation can be more than just tricks and lifts; it can be a guide to self-discovery that may open doors in how we see and relate to others around us and ourselves. My approach to CI is looking at it as an opportunity to give access to new ranges of movement possibilities, thoughts, and relationships by listening to habits, tendencies, and blocks we come in with. The work with sharing weight and physically listening to touch and tone is about understanding and expanding how we negotiate our personal environment when coming into contact with outside factors that can redirect our habitual paths and/or choices. How can we put into practice what we learn about ourselves in class with how we interact with others in the outside world? How can we find our way to peace, balance, and new ways of being through contact improvisation? Classes offered are a combination of the 3 styles described.
