Sessions are focused around finding freedom in the act of dancing. Starting in silence, we begin with breath work, looking to connect ourselves to the core of all movement. From there we will engage in a number of guided improvisations designed to mobilise and strengthen the body. Within these exercises we will help build confidence to dance with people and to push ourselves through freedom. Classes end in dynamic phrases taking inspiration from contemporary floor work, capoeira and the work of Company Chameleon. Bio:
