A highly physical practice which centres around improving efficiency and fluidity when moving in and out of the floor. We will explore organisation of weight and the generation of centrifugal energy in order to challenge coordination, and increase dynamic potential. There will be some strength and skill based inversion training. This is in preparation for movement sequences rooted around vocabulary from breaking and capoeira.
