These classes are partly a culmination of many years worth of research into the exchange of ideas between Capoeira and contemporary dance, specifically the dynamic release technique. These two organic forms of movement have at their center a focus on nature, creativity, and improvisation, as well as an emphasis on spiral dynamic and the connection between body, mind and spirit. We will investigate ways to incorporate the total physical awareness necessary for Capoeira, whose roots partly lie in the art of fighting, into the more meditative world of release technique. Through Capoeira, I hope to open more opportunities for self expression within the medium of contemporary dance – using the quality and philosophy behind the movements as inspiration without direct imitation. This poetic playfulness and animalistic physicality will provide a new and exciting dimension for dancers, Capoeiristas and amateurs alike to explore.

This is a contemporary dance class with an emphasis on floor-work and improvisation. The class draws concepts from flying low, gaga, martial arts, release, and fighting monkey. The class is aimed at heightening the presence of the individual and the group by pushing the boundaries of physicality. We will explore textures, ways of grounding, spirals, flow, and connectivity within our body, between the group, and in relation to the external world. Functionality and efficiency will be incorporated in order to find seamless transitions in floor-based movements and whole body movements. The class will be broken down into 3 parts: a guided warm-up incorporating improvisation, floor passes and movement research, and a longer phrase to integrate all of the elements we have explored throughout the class.

The class has a focus on functionality of movement that strives to improve the dancers efficient use and transferring of energy, momentum, in dancing.
We will work on turning around our own accis both in balance and of balance. We will travel through the space, both in the vertical and horizontal plane, using jumps, runs, turns and slides. The class is energetic and deals with tools from both contemporary dancing, martial arts, flying low and other related movement practices.
I try to work with learning in a 3D way, a multidimensional way. By facilitating a class situation where knowledge can pass in all directions and everybody in the room can learn from anything. In the end I want the participators to have an experience from where they can find new tools that can enrich their own dancing, work and practices.
