David Bloom Modern Training for Dancers
Classdescription: Contemporary Dance Class - Receiving The Dance Of The Day
The class begins from sensing the body itself, and then brings awareness to the spacetime we are moving through, using a mixture of improvisation proposals and set movement sequences. Each class will use the energy of the group present on that particular day, at that particular time, to create a unique experience and a joyful practice. It also aims to explore dancing as something involving both Reception and Action.
