Toby Fitzgibbons

When? Monday 12th December - Friday 16th December 9.15-10.45am

Where? Northern School of Contemporary Dance

Toby’s class has a dynamic released based feel with moments of improvisation and reflection. The body and mind will be warmed up using simple exercises and phrases, systematically working on the whole body. The class will start with work on the fundamentals like breath, the core and finding ourselves in space. The class will incorporate floor work, dynamic traveling, building to jumps and phrases. A sense of flow, connection with ourselves and others and tuning will be the key themes of the week. I hope we can share good feelings, a sense of fun and hard work.
