Technique and improv.
Feb 5, 10, 2015 Brooklyn Arts Exchange
This training prepares the body to several levels of research, cultivating perception, creativity, sensibility and technical capacity. The contemporary dancer should be open to dynamics, quality, different themes and, often contrasting, situations. Starting from Yoga and body-mind thinking, through floor and standing sequences, and improvisations, body work will be carried out in rapport to gravity and breath, starting form the spinal column. Technique will be approached with lightness, studying it's functionality and support in dynamics and space.
