Over the four hour session we will introduce techniques to improve our relationship to the floor. Specifically within the realms of floor work and low form acrobatics. Using drills, games and improvisation We will consider where our ‘gaps’ are within floor work patterns. We will also observe the relationship between efficiency and quality.
We will learn phrases that will aim to expand our floor work and acrobatic vocabulary.

We believe it is growing ever more important as an artist to not just be physically versatile but also performatively and creatively versatile. Corona virus has shown the fragility of our industry and we want to impart the knowledge and skills set that allowed us to stay afloat during the pandemic. Movement for film, the digital world and commercial industry has survived and there is a certain skill set required to find success in these areas.
As artists we have been lucky enough to work extensively for theatre and film, in a variety of styles. Our class will draw together our strengths and work through the key principles we have found for creating an artist who feels ready for both stage and camera.

Josh uses floor based technique intertwined with improvisation to help the students mesh technique with discovering their own voice.
