Class description

We are moving wisely as we learn to analyse the possibilities that time and space offer us. In this class, Momentum, Gravity and Breathing guide and help us while we play with physicality.
Using the languages of floor work, jumps, height control of directions, release and acrobatic elements, we learn to enjoy energy. In this physical world, we develop skills about how to control the judgment in ourselves, while we move and become aware of our surroundings. Everything is a tool as we look beyond the shapes of what is right or wrong in our dynamic world.
