Moving with Dynamics and Flow
Alethia Antonia and Michael Kelland will lead dynamic and challenging movement classes, combining both of their professional practices.
Participants should expect a physically demanding class which incorporates influences from different disciplines. Class will begin with mobility and strengthening and lead into a variety of different movement training throughout the week, including improvisation, floorwork and acrobatics, dynamics and rhythm training, musicality, and phrasework.
Alethia Antonia is a freelance dancer, choreographer, teacher and researcher. She has toured internationally and has worked with companies such as Russell Maliphant Dance Company, James Wilton Dance, James Cousins Company, and her own work has been commissioned by The Place, NSCD and Fashion Gallery Space. Her work draws on contemporary, hip hop, somatic, & African influences, & song to explore socio-political notions around race, gender and mental health. Alethia is currently a Work Place artist at The Place.
Michael Kelland is a freelance dance artist who has worked extensively and internationally with companies such as James Wilton Dance, Tom Dale Dance Company, Autin Dance Theatre, Lila Dance, TRIBE// and Sonia Sabri Company. His practice draws on movement styles including, martial arts, acrobatics, breaking, floorwork, kathak, release technique, improvisation, and storytelling to connect with socio-political commentary and philosophy.
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.
Ben graduated from Trinity Laban, the training cycle at P.A.R.T.S., and completed an MA in Creative Practice at Independent Dance/Trinity Laban. He works extensively as a performer and movement researcher, including major works with Vera Tussing, Charlotte Spencer Projects, Francesco Scavetta/Wee and Lisa May Thomas.
Ben occasionally initiates collaborative projects exploring collectively, agency, touch, consent, disturbance… and the pleasure of dancing! He is part of the collective working under the name Salvage – a grassroots movement for training, mutual support and dance-making within the context of the current disturbances to professional and personal life.
Alongside performing, Ben teaches classes and workshops throughout Europe for professionals and dance companies. He is a currently a regular guest teacher at Trinity Laban, London Contemporary Dance School, is a visiting teacher at several conservatoires and universities, including the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, and is a teacher on the Trinity Laban CAT programme.
He also practises the Japanese martial art Aikido at Tetsushinkan (London), and really loves to walk and run, especially if mountains are involved!
James will lead guided movement followed by improv using the performative exchange tradition of hip hop. His classes will encourage looseness and joy in movement, touching on elements of popping, shadow yoga and more.
About his workshop content he says, ‘I believe there is a lot to gain from dancing while being seen, and watching someone else dance in person.’
James has worked with many companies and artists including Jasmin Vardimon, Akram Khan, Hannes Langolf, Joan Clevillé, Frauke Requardt/David Rosenberg and Alleyne Dance.
James’ dance practice blends elements of hip hop and contemporary movement styles.
He delves into developing his own individual voice through improvisation/freestyle.
A key motivation for James is to help bridge the gap between the Contemporary world and the Hip-Hop world.
