Morning: Attack Release – The centre of the body as the origins of dynamics.
Jose’s technique class is fast paced and aims to improve stamina through
precise and simple movement patterns. The principles of the class are
influenced by a diversity of traditional forms such as Kathak, Flamenco and
martial arts, which are brought into a contemporary dance context.
The initial warm up is followed by more complex movement material with a
dynamic focus on the concept of ‘attack and release’. With a passion for
rhythm, Jose often uses counts to influence the dynamic of the movement
and spinning to engage the core. All of this work prepares the body to travel
– exploring the broadest movement in space, whilst making fast, clean
transitions from large to detailed
Participants will learn repertoire from Jose’s new creation HERO-INE. The piece is inspired by the book the hero’s journey by Joseph Campbell and how to find the hero in each of us. We will work with the different stages of our journey: call to adventure, challenges, transformation and return.
There will be elements of learning taught material as well as task-based
exercises to create movement and narrative.
Level: Suitable for choreographers, vocational and professional level dancers.
