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.

The classes are structured incorporating both technical and improvisational elements guiding the dancers through an efficient and functional warm up.In the first half
Tommaso gives freedom to the body to express its needs as much as requires a technical base as a support;
The second part of the class is dedicated to choreographic composition in which the dancers learn a musical and dynamic sequence The dancers will be asked to quickly access a very intricate and musical language, to break out of the movement codification dance imposes on our bodies in order to give it complete freedom and expressivity.

This Intensive workshop is very physical and dynamic, drawing from Sabrina’s background and experience as a professional dance artist and physical theatre performer.
The long class includes exercises that allow connecting of breath and body, improvisation, floor work, which is very enriched by the use of spirals, fast transitions to challenge coordination and stamina and a big influence of capoeira which is inspiring Sabrina’s work for seven years.
Those elements are fused into a practice that has a focus on grounding, efficiency, fluidity and connection through space and in and out of the floor.
The workshop will focus, as well, on physical theatre exercises that will aim to help the participant using the technique as a tool to discover a unique way to move.
