Heidi Weiss teaches a structured contemporary technique class (*weissmann) which has strong roots in modern dance. The class combines strengthening elements with release based exercises that emphasise breath and flow. The training begins with a focus on the center through basic yoga poses and continues with moving technical exercises (plies, foot work, floor work, curves /swings) which allow the body to open, creating length and volume. The class progresses from center to across the floor, followed by a longer combination and/ or jumps. Aside from developing an understanding of the weissmann style and building upon ones technical skills, the main goal of the class is to discover the intention behind the movement. Dancers are encouraged to move with authenticity, curiosity and passion!
