The first part of the workshop focuses mainly on the dancer's relationship with the ground and the air. The class uses simple movement patterns that involve breathing, speed and the release of energy throughout the body in order to activate the relationship between the center and the joints, in and out of the ground more efficiently. The approach is to develop movement in different levels - up and down, different supports and seek the balance of body parts. We started by playing games that wake up the body and mind, they are encouraged to connect with the environment: air, floor, and the energy of
others, forming an interconnection. Later we focus on short motion exercises that take the body into drawing spirals, weight control, moving through space, speed, precision, and movements that connect us to the final phrases which will end the first part of the class.
This second part of the class will focus on partner work and relationship aspects such as confidence, weight, instinct, conscience, leaders, and followers. The flow in physical communication depends on the awareness of a shared balance. We will work with predefined situations, which are based on the trust of others. Then we can take more risks to play with power and speed. Participants are encouraged to bring their own ideas, explore
and rediscover their own qualities. We will examine some elements used in the form of creation of Los INnato and
participants are invited to develop their own material within this defined context. This workshop seeks to encourage the innate instinct and movement of each of the participants, develop trust within the group and build safe conclusions to difficult actions.
