What started out as dance classes has grown into

a season of dance experiences in December

MASTERCLASS

This is an energetic class, focusing on clarity, intention and physicality. The Class is a combination of contemporary dance technique mixed with improvisation.

The warmup engages the alignment in the body and is followed by movement material with a dynamic flow playing with energies between attack and release, allowing the joints to relax and energy to flow with maximum efficiency. Yeri uses music to influence the dynamic of the movement and spinning to engage the core. The class has influence from martial arts. All of this work prepares the body to travel, exploring the broadest movement in space, whilst making fast, clean transitions from large to detailed movement.

The Art of Falling is a practice that is, first of all, functional. Bailing out of flips and tricks, or simply falling when you trip. Knowing how to fall is hugely important to prevent injury, or at least as a means of reducing an injury’s severity.

 

Also, it can be cool. A surprise fall is a great way of creating, well, surprise. It's a great means of making a dance dynamic and exciting.

 

And then, it becomes a creative tool. If you can fall one way, and another, and another, and get up with a different method each time, you have a movement sequence. And movement sequence layered on movement sequence, and you get choreography.
