Release Technique - Making Connections

The series of classes are strongly influenced by the work of Irmgard Bartenieff, Susan Klein, and F.M. Alexander. They begin simply by focusing on our skeletal structure and breath to access the power of the deeper supporting muscles of the body. Concepts and aspects of the body are introduced through pictorial and metaphoric imagery and partner work exploration. Central themes are the skeletal system, handling of weight, the perceptions and the ordination/co-ordination.

Through the experiential knowledge of movement principles, patterning connections in the body and by obtaining an alert and heightened sensory awareness, the work develops into complex movement phrases of high precision and clarity that energise the dancer's directional use of energy throughout the body.

This method of training centres on kinaesthetics rather than aesthetics, in order to re-discover how we move, are moved and how we can develop the capacity for decision making in relation to learned movement material. In brief it is for those who desire movement that has clear intention, is energetically releasing and reveals a deeply connected sense of mind and body.
