Nadine Freisleben

When? w/c 29 July, Monday - Thursday, 9.30am - 11am

Where? Northern School of Contemporary Dance
NB. Thursday’s class will be at The Dance Studio Leeds

The focus of these classes is the instinctive movement repertory of the body. We research capabilities of the body and mind to move in a non-regimented space and get rid of physical and psychological automatisms and judgements. With awareness we loosen up the spine and the neck and strengthen the deep muscles. After we´ve found the permeability of the body, the exercises get physical and energetic.  

Nadine Freisleben danced in, and choreographed for various Nigerian contemporary dance companies and festivals (Goethe Institut, Alliance Francaise) from 2008 to 2010. Since 2012 she studied Contemporary Dance in Berlin and worked internationally with choreographers like Chaim Gebber and Jennifer Mann. 2013 she founded her own dance theatre company „Gau Company“.
