The Beauty of Kicks
We will practice kicks as an act of liveliness, not only aggression, using movement principles from martial arts. Inspired by Marta’s background in translation, interpreting and her text-based performance works, poetry will serve as the soundtrack of this class. Plus, no need to be Chuck Norris to participate!
