This is an open level physical and dynamic contemporary dance class influenced by Release and David Zambrano’s Flying Low techniques.
In this class we will explore the possibilities of form, qualities and musicality within a sequence.
In the first part of the class we will warm up by building strength and mobility through the whole body. Followed by a series of tasks and improvisation, we are going to explore how we can use our body to find ways to expand our movement and preserve the flow being created. We will also work on the use of pauses, variety of qualities and how we can use these tools to play with musicality in order to make our movement interesting and adaptable to every change of circumstances and environment. In the last part of the class we will learn a sequence where we are going to apply all the principles we worked on through the class.
