Jo Fong

Monday 3 December: Yorkshire Dance
Tuesday 4 December - Thursday 6 December: RJC Dance

All classes run 9.30am - 11am

Jo's class is in the form of a guided improvisation. The source of the warm up is about relationships with our own bodies following individual and inherent desires, a sense of play, listening and investigation, developing an efficient and dynamic approach. Jo’s class is influenced by her eclectic experiences and dance performance styles. Working from the inside of the body to the outside she incorporates aspects of release, yoga, manipulation and contact techniques. The focus is on creating receptive, active and interactive qualities within movement for the dancer.

Her eclectic career includes working with companies such as DV8 Physical Theatre, Rosas (Belgium) and Rambert Dance Company.
