The class is predominantly improvisation. Dancers are provided with imagery in order to guide them through, or find different movement qualities. Imagery given can come from a physical starting point as well as an emotional one in order to find different movement patterns.
As a whole will focus on trying to create a sense of totality throughout the body. This is done through creating awareness of the dancers' physical energy, and how its used.
Some set exercises will also be introduced so dancers can try and find this totality within the movement material.
James has worked extensively with Hofesh Shechter Company in numerous dance productions and more recently he has performed with Punchdrunk.
