Class Description CLASSES

After a breathing based warm up to relax the body, the energy in class usually builds quickly. Working from the idea of improvisation the choreographed movement can be very organic, providing you with a free and softened approach to technique and release. The class develops into floor and corner work, in which we focus on finding ways of pushing through the floor and expanding on methods that combine power with grace and flow. This class focuses on performance qualities rather than classical techniques and is a great chance for you to express the choreography in your own unique way. The choreography is based on lyrical/free flowing movement however this doesn’t mean the body is not pushed to its full extent, parts of the class and choreography can be quick moving and theatrical, offering you a variety of texture and narrative to work from.
