What should I expect?
The classes consist of a sequence of 10 dance/movement exercises, all of which are first explained and demonstrated by the facilitator, who will then invite you to dance in your own unique way, inspired by the music and the suggestions given.
What kind of music do you dance to?
We dance to a wide variety of music types, genres or styles. We select music that triggers positive emotions and an instinctive rhythmic response (a strong desire to move along to it), e.g. Brazilian samba, traditional jazz, African drums, tango, Latin, classical, etc. In the first part of the class we use music that stimulates vitality, action and vital energy. In the second half we use relaxing music that helps to rebalance the body.
What do you actually do?
These introductory classes focus on playful dances to help break the ice and stimulate natural, spontaneous movements. We also practice a series of simple fluidity exercises to helps us decelerate and flow with life. We dance alone, as a whole group, in pairs and in small groups. All dances are done ‘in feedback’, i.e. nobody does what doesn’t feel good.
