This will be a physical intensive, which will involve strong, complex and technical sequences in and out of the floor, focusing on performance/stamina and commitment throughout the session, improvisation will also be explored as part of self development.
The Intensive will consist of Company Class, Learning Repertoire and a Creative Session. This will be a physically demanding programme involving complex and technical vocabulary, where participants will develop their performance skills, stamina and creative language.
We will play with the art of intention and honesty of movement and how emotions can transform material or be used as stimuli. This class is for participants discovering their personal styles in movement, self-development to improve in auditions and creative processes, young choreographers who want to test their creative methods and teachers who need inspiration for generating material. In these sessions the participant will explore many ways to devise onto others / their own solos / group explorations and partner work.
