Dynamics, Rhythm and Texture
This is a physical contemporary class, which will involve strong, complex and technical sequences adjusted for a home environment, focusing on performance and stamina. The session will begin with different aspects of movement study, focusing on the articulation of hands. Improvisation will also be explored as part of self-development, stemming from a physical intention.
The desired outcomes for the trainings are to develop the dancers’ creative mind and drive from passion, determination, strength, musicality and most importantly an intention and honesty in whatever choice they make during the session.
