This class will focus on skills for moving on the floor and upside with confidence and speed.
Drawing from contemporary dance techniques and elements from Capoeira we will move with flow, weight, spirals and momentum. The class will begin with yoga and conditioning exercises to prepare the body before focusing on various movements during crossings followed by either a phrase or improvisational tasks.

The classes will focus on the discipline of Acrobatic Movement and how to take a healthy approach to this intense training.

Mimbre is a female-led company creating nuanced, breath-taking and highly-skilled acrobatic theatre. We use circus and dance innovatively as a physical language to illuminate human connections and promote a positive image of women.

In these morning classes we will teach a range of specialised acrobatics movements and techniques from Mimbre’s repertoire of tricks and styles, including fluid movements along the floor and upside-down shapes (handstands, headstands and other figures).

 
Each day will start with a full physical warm-up, which will cover agility and stamina training, along with strengthening and injury prevention exercises, followed by individual acrobatics techniques.
We will also look at creative and innovative approaches to choreographing acrobatics, building up to creating small choreographic sequences with the material learnt and explore how to keep the complicity between the participants despite not using physical contact with each other.
We’ll also work on a range of specialised acrobalance techniques from mimbre’s repertoire of tricks and styles: we’ll explore how two or more people connect physically, catching, pushing and climbing on each other to create beautiful imagery.
 
We are very inclusive and can adapt the movements to anyone’s ability. We’re very experienced in approaching physical limits (injury, disability, body type) as creative springboards instead of stopping points, using restrictions as tools to come up with new and original ways of working.
