Flying Low is a technique initiated by David Zambrano that uses simple movement patterns and principles (such as spiralling and alternating between expansion and cohesion) to dance our whole selves in, out and along the floor with speed, efficiency and pleasure.
Hannah Grace is a performer and performance-maker based in London. Hannah has received her BA and MA in Dance, and has traveled around the world learning from masters of contemporary dance and improvisation, including participating in many Flying-Low and Passing Through workshops with David Zambrano, as well as his 60 Days of Improvisation in 2019. Hannah currently performs in, choreographs and directs performances across the United Kingdom and United States. She enjoys exploring the intersection of holistic healing and performance art, and is a reiki healer, yoga and meditation teacher, hypnotherapist, Inner Voice facilitator and birth doula in conjunction with her career in dance.

Morning: Attack Release – The centre of the body as the origins of dynamics.
Jose’s technique class is fast paced and aims to improve stamina through
precise and simple movement patterns. The principles of the class are
influenced by a diversity of traditional forms such as Kathak, Flamenco and
martial arts, which are brought into a contemporary dance context.
The initial warm up is followed by more complex movement material with a
dynamic focus on the concept of ‘attack and release’. With a passion for
rhythm, Jose often uses counts to influence the dynamic of the movement
and spinning to engage the core. All of this work prepares the body to travel
– exploring the broadest movement in space, whilst making fast, clean
transitions from large to detailed
Participants will learn repertoire from Jose’s new creation HERO-INE. The piece is inspired by the book the hero’s journey by Joseph Campbell and how to find the hero in each of us. We will work with the different stages of our journey: call to adventure, challenges, transformation and return.
There will be elements of learning taught material as well as task-based
exercises to create movement and narrative.
Level: Suitable for choreographers, vocational and professional level dancers.

Jose started his career in Andalusia where he began performing in musical theatre and as a Flamenco dancer. Slowly the world of contemporary dance became more visible as he worked throughout Europe performing with Charleroi/Danses, Ballet de Marseille, T.R.A.S.H, Shobana Jeyasingh Dance and Akram Khan Company.
From 2010-2017, Jose worked on seven creations with Akram Khan Company as a choreographic assistant, rehearsal director and dancer. During this time, Jose studied Kathak under Akram’s guidance. Finding many parallels between this training and his early studies of Flamenco, Jose reconnected with his roots and began to explore traditional forms in a contemporary context. As a result, he established Agudo Dance Company in 2017, touring the inaugural work Silk Road in 6 countries, followed by a stunning adaptation of Carmen, which continues to tour in 2022.
Jose’s independent choreographic commissions include productions for Phoenix Dance Theatre, ZfinMalta Dance Ensemble, ACE Dance and Music, Cape Dance Company, Norrdans, Akademi, London Mozart Players, Festival International de Music y Danza de Granada, SEAD/Bodhi Project, Area Jeune Ballet, Rambert School, English National Ballet School, London Contemporary Dance School, London Studio Centre, and Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
In 2019, Jose choreographed the opening ceremony of the Davis Cup by Rakuten in Madrid. He is listed in the new edition of 50 Contemporary Choreographers, an international publication by Routledge.
These classes will be shared by Theo and Becky Monday – Wednesday and taught by just Theo on Thursday.
Becky will share some of her approaches to moving in contact with others. There will be a focus on receptivity, to explore the range of forces available to us when meeting others and sharing weight.
Theo will be focusing on finding softness within floorwork. This section will include both set and improvised crossings and finish with a phrase that aims to apply the vocabulary of these crossings.
Theo’s artistic practice has been influenced by artists including Sita Ostheimer, Sofia Nappi and Ben Wright
