ProDance class with Ruben Brown

Using release-based technique as a basis, my class looks to work through a framework of set exercises with applied somatic principles.
Starting from a place of rest into movement, we will work on activating the spine from the floor upwards. As the class progresses, fundamentals of ease and fluidity will carry us into motion as we explore spatial patterns and more dynamic phrases.
The aim of the class is to enjoy the body’s release and I invite each person to relish in the process of dancing and indulge in their own curiosities.

Questioning where intention lies between physical expression and the autonomous subject, and how do we materialise and translate subject matter into meaning?

Release / Unleash
 
In this physically challenging contemporary class there will be a strong focus on dynamics, explosiveness and musicality. Through improvisation we will encourage playfulness, imagination and movement potential. The class includes exercises that allow grounding and connecting with our core to find ease and silence before speed and explosion. Rose will offer tools to move with agility, efficiency and fluidity whilst breaking habits and increasing awareness.

My practice is influenced by: flying low, floorwork, release technique, popping and kalaripayyattu.

PRODANCE Class WITH HANNAH THOMAS

Hannah’s classes will be largely floorwork based and will explore how releasing into the ground can allow for speed and fluidity. The session will use repetition and progression as a way of increasing familiarity with the material, and will explore the more challenging elements of groundwork, including balances on the hands, going upside down and taking risks.
In addition to solo movements, the workshop will explore how we can play with similar principles during low-level contact improvisation.

Hannah will be sharing an insight into her research in floor connection, looking at how we can achieve maximum efficiency and fluidity within the movement.

The research can be tailored to meet the ability and desire of each participant, therefore the class is open to individuals with different levels of experience. Curiosity is welcomed and group energy is celebrated.

Bring long trousers and a long sleeved t-shirt, as well as lots of water because it will get sweaty.
