TECHNIQUE CLASS DESCRIPTION

CONTEMPORARY RELEASE BY KIR QVORTRUP
THE CLASS BUILDS UP PROGRESSIVELY FROM SIMPLE BREATHING EXERCISES TO GUIDED EXPLORATION FOCUSING ON ALIGNMENT, GROUNDING AND SKELETAL STRUCTURE ACCESSING THE BODY’S DEEP SUPPORTING MUSCLES, ALLOWING SUPPLENESS IN THE SUPERFICIAL MUSCLES WHEN MOVING.
THE EXPLORATION ALLOWS THE DANCERS TO WARM UP, INTEGRATING BODY AND MIND AND ESCAPING HABITUAL DAILY MOVEMENT PATTERNS AS WELL AS RECOGNIZING NATURAL GRAVITY AND CONNECTIONS IN THE BODY. THE GUIDED EXPLORATION IS FOLLOWED BY PHYSICAL AND DYNAMIC DANCE PHRASES AND STAMINA EXERCISES, TRAVELING IN THE SPACE AND MOVING IN AND OUT OF THE FLOOR. WITHIN THESE PHRASES WE EXPLORE ENERGY OF ONE MOVEMENT RECYCLED INTO ANOTHER, AS WELL AS FINDING A BALANCE BETWEEN WHAT YOU CONTROL AND WHAT YOU LET HAPPEN. THE CLASS FINISHES OF WITH A COMBINATION, WHICH FUSES ALL PRE-USED MOVEMENT PRINCIPLES. HERE WE PLAY WITH DIFFERENT DYNAMICS AND DEVELOP WAYS OF ORGANIZING OUR SELVES IN SPACE AND TIME, INTEGRATING CONCEPTS OF WEIGHT AND LIGHTNESS, INITIATION AND INTENTION. MAIN FOCUS OF THE CLASS IS THE CONNECTION TO AND USE OF THE FLOOR, ALLOWING THE MOVEMENT TO SHIFT FREELY THROUGH THE BODY WHILE RESEARCHING WAYS OF CREATING AND SUSTAINING PERSONAL MOVEMENT VOCABULARY. THROUGHOUT THE CLASS WE DISCOVER EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT USE OF THE BODIES POTENTIAL AND A BODY MORE FOCUSED ON REACTING, THAN ON ACTING
