When? w/c 27 May, Tuesday - Friday, 9.30am - 11am
Where? Northern School of Contemporary Dance
This will be a class inspired by Contemporary and Caribbean dance, Release Technique, Animal Flow and Yoga. We will seek liberation and flow of movement, by strengthening our grounding to the earth and finding the elasticity of our core. From shifting our weight in lower spaces of gravity, to slicing space, changing levels and textures of movement. We will integrate movement patterns and rhythms, travelling through the room. Inviting an acute focus, finding accuracy, breath and clarity. In an energetic and playful environment we will revitalise our senses, build strength, stamina and open our awareness. Class will be accompanied by live music (beat box).
