JANUARY 23 + 24 Hannah Kidd // Cunningham-based Technique Inspired by her time with Richard Alston Dance Company, Hannah teaches a Cunningham based class that focuses on finding a healthy body alignment and aims to form strong connections. More about the artist.
FEB 13 + 14 Lewys Holt // Improvisation & Set Material We will investigate how it feels to approach set material as if it were an improvisation and improvisation as if it were material that we knew like the back of our hands. Throughout the class we will fluctuate in energy, as we explore a range of physical states from sweaty to not so sweaty. More about the artist.
FEB 27 + 28 Eleesha Drennan // Dynamic Release Eleesha teaches a rigorous, dynamic, release technique class that aims to energise the dance artist in a holistic way. The class gradually progresses from simple exercises that open the body and build physical power, culminating in an expansive movement sequence. More about the artist.
MARCH 13 + 14 Ruth Valensi // Vertigo Class & Rep Ruth’s class is inspired by the principles of the Feldenkrais method, Axis syllabus approach and Vertigo Dance Company Repertoire. It will focus on the utilisation of the body’s most human patterns, such as crawling, rolling, running, and falling through space. More about the artist.
MARCH 27 + 28 Mathieu Geffre // Contemporary Technique Mathieu’s class intends to build a body that is centred but alert and in motion. Starting from simple standing exercises, the class slowly challenges the body’s reactivity. Technical though accessible to all, the training is above all about connecting with the pleasure of motion. More about the artist.
APRIL 3 + 4 Ben McEwen // Flying Low This is a technique initiated by David Zambrano that uses simple movement patterns and principles (such as spiralling and alternating between expansion and cohesion) to dance our whole selves in, out and along the floor with speed, efficiency… and pleasure!
