Contemporary Technique Beginners

Instinct, games and discoveries

The aim of this lab is to develop unique movement patterns by playing with different tools and qualities of movement such as rebound, flow and much more. Improvisation or "Open Dancing" will be our starting point. Later the focus will be on short exercises based on isolations and polyrhythms.

Adapted for the beginners level this workshop is a playful environment: you will work with instinct and consciousness simultaneously in order to discover movement possibilities. I would like to precipitate curiosity and creativity, taste for dancing in order to increase the dancers' movement skills. In addition I would like to focus and exercise individual practice, duet work and group work. I have created a system of how to approach this practice in an efficient way, which I am looking forward to share with you.

Contemporary Technique Intermediate

Instinct, Support Action and Fearlessness

My class is about working with powerful physicality related to the floor and air. The focus of the class is to develop movement in different levels - up and down positions, shifting support and balance in different parts of the body and handstand work. My inspiration for the class comes from every living moment that I sense in my life.
We start the class with full power by playing games that wake up the body and mind. Later we slow down and focus on the short exercises that we connect to final phrases, which will end the class.
Rhythmically we extend and shift movement from the floor phrases into the air and down again, using speed and efficiency of our body.
I welcome support, action and fearlessness. In a playful environment I would like to work with the instinct to discover different kinds of movement possibilities. The point of my class is to develop trust within the group and build safe conclusions to difficult actions.
