Patricia Hastewell facilitates ProDance training
Mon, Tue, Wed, Thur 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.  |  £6
week 18th-21st March

The class will work on technique and creativity, through set material and through improvisation. The goal is to acquire the maximum of physical awareness, in order to access all our full potencial. Patricia looks for adaptability, different textures, speeds, qualities, rhythms, dynamics to broaden our own performance.

Patricia sees technique as a tool to access more possibilities of awareness and of physical expression. We will work on floor work, on grounding the body (leg stability and mobility, kicks, lunges,horse stance work), and on dynamic movement (running, spinning, jumping). Through improvisation we will study how to access what we want to communicate, witch tools can we use (velocity, tension, flexibility) to transform our physical speech. We look for detailed movement within the engagement of the full body. I believe in the expressive power of dance. The goal is to strengthen the specificity of each body to find a honest, powerful and individual way of moving.
