Tomorrow’s class: Wednesday 24 January, will be taught by Ben King instead of Ella Mesma:
Ben is a freelance dance performer, choreographer, and teacher. He has performed work by Ransack Dance, Simple Dance Company, Maxine Doyle to name a few. Choreographic works include Ingrid Sørensen & Dancers, Nós a duet collaborated with Fernanda Prata. As a teacher Ben has been leading various workshops for professional national and international dance companies such as Focus Dance Company, Simple Dance as well leading classes at Siobhan Davies/Independent Dance, Spinae Dance Festival, Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.
Ben’s class will utilise different exercises and games, shifting between structured improvisation and taught form so the participants can find freedom within a certain style. The physical language we find we will allow us to explore; moving from intention and/or sensation, flow, risk and trust, playing with in/out of balance, and use of weight. Ben is committed to seeking the relationship between mastery of craft and technique with each unique expression of the individuals to find something real in performance.
