Gaining momentum into space
The material in the class includes somatic based improvisation tasks, dynamic release techniques, qi-gong, spirals, and grounded animal-like floor work. Continuous movement flow, and improvisational tasks with attention to the feedback of the senses, are used to bring the dancer into a instinctive state of availability while thoroughly warming up the physical body. There is a clear focus on the use of the floor as a tool to form and inform the body in movement. We will sense and examine the suspension and support structures of our bones as they shift and change form during movement enabling us to balance continuous grounding with horizontal flying momentum through space. Through the specific buildup of the training, each dancer is able to find their own supportive anatomical alignment, timing, and weight in the material. At the end of the class, these elements are brought together in a sweeping movement phrase where each dancer is asked to challenge the delicate balance between fall & control.
