This class will revolve around floorwork and the core principle of executing movements with ease. Its primary aim is to explore and refine the skill of weight shifting, enabling dancers to effortlessly transition between various movements while grasping the impact weight distribution has on movement quality and aesthetics.
Through improvisation and targeted exercises, participants will delve into the utilisation of body weight and momentum to generate power and propel themselves through space. The focus will be on mastering the efficient use of weight, minimising effort while maximising the profound impact of each movement.
