An exploratory workshop to see what changes in the dancer’s body from day to day by beginning with Gyrokinesis™ and then go straight into a ballet class.

This workshop is directed to professional’s dancers in cooperation with Danscentrum Stockholm. You can choose to participate in both classes or choose just one of them but a registration is necessary. 

The Gyrokinesis ™ class begins on a chair with a series of fluid spinal motions which increase range of motion, and prepares the body to explore more complex movements with agility, and ease. Class continues on the floor with exercises that expand on the spinal motions, gradually adding more complex sequences, incorporating more movements of the hips, shoulders, hands and feet. Gyrokinesis™ is a safe and systematic learning process developed by Juliu Horvath. 

Modern Ballet Class: The modern ballet class evaluates and re-evaluates the dancers body with the objective to strengthen the awareness of his or her own natural alignment and experience in the setting of a ballet class meaning Barre and Centre practice. The Barre emphasises isolating, releasing the joints,and using that articulation to strengthen the dancer's core awareness and deepen their understanding of where the movement is initiated in the body to support a more functional body placement while at the same time rethinking the basic systems needed in the ballet vocabulary . The Centre practice challenges the dancer to use the new found information while using the ballet vocabulary as a tool when being confronted with shift of weight, change of direction and moving the body through space.
