In my classes, I like to facilitate a welcoming, energetic and encouraging environment for the participants. This course is designed especially for beginners who are interested to practice and understand the mechanisms of transitioning in a smooth and safe way in and out of the floor. The class begins with a playful warm-up to tune in with ourselves in space and connect with each other, preparing safely for dance practice. We will focus on floorwork technique through various exercises and dance phrases. There will be some exercises informed by Flying Low, a technique which was developed by David Zambrano. This technique focuses mainly on the dancer's relationship with the ground, utilizing simple movement patterns, which explore cohesion and expansion and trains the body to move in and out of the floor efficiently with speed. Towards the end of the class, we are going to learn a longer dance sequence in which we will add more material each time.

Through this class, we train our body to become physically strong, alerted and agile. We become friends with the floor, learn to use our weight efficiently, play with different dynamics and work towards expanding our movement vocabulary. Nourishing our bodily awareness we move with a greater sense of our own bodies, the others, and space, but also with a greater pleasure for movement.

Are you looking for a course to develop your technical knowledge while you are having fun? Then this class is for you!

Expect to play, fall, spiral, roll, release, jump, connect, fly, make contact, enjoy the pleasure of motion... Looking forward to meeting you on the dance floor!
