Contemporary dance technique

The class focuses on the dancer’s connection with the floor through simple movement patterns. We use simple sequences and exercises focusing on circular movement of the body. Throughout activation of strength and breath we move as efficiently as possible. The emphasis of the training is on the pleasure of movement, activation of the body, achieving a fluid movement quality and “dancing yourself out”.
