Sam is a professional contemporary dancer, having finished his experience in Kent with Jasmin Vardimon.
Sam’s class is a highly physical contemporary class which aims to engage the brain in order to trust the body. Through coordination, partnering, and improvisation exercises, we attempt to ‘fry’ our brains in order to let go and be present in the moment. We then apply this to structured phrases filled with quirky gestures and expansive floor work to find freedom and fun in our dancing.
Sam Burkett is a dancer and choreographer who also happens to have a degree in Politics.
Known for being both highly creative and extremely sweaty, Sam creates dance theatre that runs the emotional gamut from happy to sad to hungry to gay. Their choreography has been shown in both the UK and the US, and their solo, Crop Tops Make Me Feel Vulnerable, won the Best of Anything Goes Award at the 2018 Houston Fringe Festival. Their work is distinctly physical and theatrical and draws inspiration from everything from professional wrestling to French love ballads. They have performed in works by Jasmin Vardimon (UK), Anna Kenrick (UK), and Teresa Chapman (USA) among others.
Participants: Dancer and Movement Practitioners
Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with himself and others.
Gaga/dancers classes are open to professional dancers or advanced dance students ages 16+.
These classes last for an hour and fifteen minutes and are taught by dancers who have worked closely with Ohad Naharin.
Gaga/dancers classes are built on the same principles as Gaga/people classes but also employ the specific vocabulary and skills that are part and parcel of a dancer’s knowledge. The layering of familiar movements with Gaga tasks presents dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class, teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places and ways of moving as well. Gaga/dancers deepens dancers’ awareness of physical sensations, expands their palette of available movement options, enhances their ability to modulate their energy and engage their explosive power, and enriches their movement quality with a wide range of textures.
