When? Monday - Thursday 9.30 - 11.00am

Where? RJC Dance

Charlotte’s class is an attempt to integrate her own research into the seven fundamentals of movement (squat, lunge, push, pull, twist, hinge and locomotion) with everyday training. Using the premise of stripping movement right back, we can hope to find something more efficient and easy when moving. Working through individual explorations and sequences formed from the movement fundamentals we will find a place where our complex and multi-oriented bodies can dance with ease!

The first part of Anna’s session focuses on group dynamics; opening up the awareness of space, trajectory, rhythm and others bodies in the room, we will work to surrender and commit to the group while responding to specific tasks. We will then dive into spatial crossings, working with progressive patterns which will take us from the floor up to standing. The final section will be dedicated to sequential exercises playing with motion and momentum and drawing from material previously explored.
