Energetic Release

Searching the physicality

Jose's class is fast paced and aims to improve stamina through precise and simple movement patterns. The principles of his class are influenced by the diversity of traditional forms, which are often brought into contemporary dance.

The initial warm-up engages in finding simple alignment in the body and is followed by more complex movement material with a dynamic focus on the concept of "attack and release". The technique allows joints to relax and energy to flow with maximum efficiency. Jose often uses counts to influence the dynamic of the movement and spinning to engage the core. This stems from a strong influence by Asian movement forms and martial arts.

All of this work prepares the body to travel, exploring the broadest movement in space, whilst making fast, clean transitions from large to detailed movement. This is an energetic class, focusing on intention, clarity and extreme physicality.
