Gravity Happens: Principles of Movement This workshop is designed for movement beginners who would like to feel more at home in their bodies before starting a dance workshop. It is also a tool for promoting well-being in everyday movement and for preventing injury in dance and sports, as it analyses movement patterns and enables movers to develop efficient pathways. We will focus on sensory development, flexibility and strength. There will be time to ask and discuss questions, and the class will be adapted according to what is important for the group. Movement principles are based on the mechanics of the human body moving in a field of gravity. Our nervous system deals with a vertically aligned structure of bones, muscles, joints, organs, liquids, tissue, and more. When moving, all these body systems are involved in a dynamic conversation. Some essential aspects of this conversation we will break down into exercises and explorations: - how to develop efficient centre strength and stability? - how to let go of unnecessary tension by using deep muscles while releasing surface muscles? - how to articulate spinal movement? - how to move the body as a unit and how to isolate movement? - how to integrate the ground into moving by folding/unfolding the body? Our newly acquired knowledge will be incorporated in small choreographies and improvisations. In this practice your body will become more connected developing physical intelligence. Be prepared to work as much with your mind as with your body.
