Where does motion well up from? Small corrective movements pulled by Earth's gravity grow into a kinaesthetic chain that passes through your entire structure. Instinctive, impulsive motion; grip and release in harmony. Focusing attention on different parts of the body, exploring their weight and function, while simultaneously remaining sensitive to the environment. Moving across the floor and in the vertical dimension utilising the centrifugal force while simultaneously minimising all unnecessary muscle tension. Sending your roots deep into the core of Earth, then leaping into a jump and landing gently without sound. Like a dance!

Each class begins with comprehensive warm-ups, followed by a floor technique session that leads into a closing sequence and/or guided improvisation exercises. Welcome to dance!
