AWARENESS THROUGH MOVEMENT®/Contemporary ballet, or just shifting through classical form...
I would like to open up the ballet class as a free space to play with options to enrich your artistic voice/expression and enhance your technical ease. Ballet class, for me, is an improvisation within the parameters that define its style. I hope to look beyond its supposed rigidity (be a rebel!) to find immense room for your personal flow and fluidity to emerge. How can we become better at recognising the choices available to us within the structure to allow our inner artist to forge our individual enjoyment of expression? What's right and what's wrong? What's perfection? This questioning could lead to something exciting. Steps in ballet are a means and not an end, right? Ballet can be more than just turning out, and instead, be a dance that is weaved from the quality of your personal choices - your artistry.
The classes are made possible through Dansalliansen and Danscentrum Syd, open to professional freelanc dancers and du to the pandemic you have to pre-registrat to participate https://doodle.com/poll/hpmn6bbvwevzvdc4
