Solo support.
The course will focus on the importance of supporting the partner to create a dance duet. The technical part includes ground work. In this way, body architecture will be studied in order to slide on the ground without effort using momentum, weight and the gravitational center of the body.

Let’s explore our backspace in order to test our confidence! How to have « eyes in the back of our heads » ?
How do the mind and body act/react in this hind territory?
Step by step, we will tame the « dancing back » in an evolving way, taking greater and greater risks. From fall to take off!

She studied at « Bewegungs-Art schule » in Freiburg, Germany, where she dug into Improvisation skills, dance and performance.

An invitation to let go in a haven of peace. Dancing, experience the laws of gravity, momentum and balance, that is the contact improvisation.
