Contemporary dance classes for beginners and intermediate/advanced adults (w/ Beatrice)
Regardless of our age or profession, dance keeps us connected, happy and in shape. It helps us develop new skills, relax and get to know ourselves better. An active life keeps us balanced both mentally and physically, and participation in a contemporary dance course can contribute directly.
These courses offer a playful approach to movement and relationship with your own body where attention is directed towards awareness of the body's presence, emotions and sensations during the class. It is also intended to increase trust in your own body and to identify your unique style, beyond form. For an hour, we will go together through a complex self-awareness process through:
a. Principles and practices of movement extracted from different techniques and methods, but also contemporary dance concepts; they are useful to us in understanding the thinking mechanisms of our body and the ways in which its mobility changes at the different stages of evolution it has undergone. These principles also help us to prepare the body for effort and build a new vocabulary of movement.
b. Choreographic structures and movement phrases; by learning them, we train the ability to make different connections in the logic of our motricity--another to the one we are used to. Beyond the assimilation of a choreography, we can apply numerous work themes so that we can juggle with the material, by deconstructing it and modifying it in close connection with our personal style.
c. Themes of improvisation; they encourage us to show ourselves creatively, without judgment of esthetic appeal, guided by the intelligence of our own body. Moreover, during the improvisation process, reflections are sharpen, environmental attention is increasing and responsiveness improves.
d. Relaxation and stress relieving practices; with their help, the muscles, joints and the mind will calm down and emerge from physical practice in an organic way to avoid or reduce post-training effects: Muscle fever, fatigue, etc.
The difference between the two levels – beginners and intermediate/advanced is the work pace and intensity of the proposed exercises. While we do not aim to transform learners into professional dancers, we respect each other's different learning rhythm and the desire for progress and deepening. The change from one group to the other or the assignment to the intermediate/advanced group is made by the course facilitator, following an assessment of the trainee, when the latter is physically prepared and wishes to change.
So whether you are at your first meeting with contemporary dance or want to work intensively on the dance floor, you are welcome with us.
