Week 3, 30.7.–3.8.2012
The class builds progressively from deep and static stretching to very physical and dynamic phrases. Some of the main focuses of the class are the explorations or natural connections in the body and how to use gravity (centrifugal force, potential and kinetic energy...) and floor as dance partners. We will look towards ways of developing a strong sense of organicity, finding a balance between what you control and what you let happen, how to recycle the energy of a movement into another, how to increase the speed of your dancing in a relatively effortless way.
The class challenges the participants to take the risk of exploring their physicality as far as they can, more in their flexibility than in the intensity of their dancing.
