Contemporary Motion

by Saturday, November 14, 2015

This contemporary dance class is created using the principles of release technique which place emphasis on using the breath to stimulate movement from the body’s centre point in conjunction with momentum and imagery. You will practise the control required to move with ease in and out of the floor and to shift through varied planes with clarity and dynamism. Fall, rebound and suspension, the fundamentals of Limon technique, are also be explored as well as the contraction and release of Graham. Aspects of Horton technique such as primitive squats, flat backs and lateral stretches are also practised in the classes to lengthen the spine. The use of momentum and gravity explored in this class requires a sense of fearlessness which you are supported to explore to enable you to surrender to the sensation.  The class consists of technique exercises, choreographed phrases and travelling at an open level. The continuous pace of the class optimises the training of your beautiful bold body.  Participation in this class will enable you to explore new boundaries and versatility and to also minimise tension all in the search for clarity and fluidity. As a result your core strength, flexibility and stamina will improve. All fitness and experience levels welcome.  “Strive for simplicity and clarity without extraneous movement, superfluous energy or unwanted tension that would interfere with the original intent [as] when you stop trying to be pretty … you will be beautiful” Jose Limon.
