This workshop is open to anyone who has experience in contemporary dance and/or in urban styles.
We will be working on cardio exercises and strength training with an interest in discovering our own physicality and consider elements of injury prevention. The workshop also addresses body awareness exploring different qualities of movement such as body isolate or tatting and focusing on how the body can travel into the space with different rhythms and velocities using guided improvisation tasks. Technical elements and single dynamic movements from acrobatics and floor work will be part of the build up to a very high & dynamic energy. We will learn choreographies in which we apply the elements addressed during the initial stages of the class, adding our own personal movement quality to express our individuality.
