Class description:

Klein Technique™ is a bodywork, in constant shift between practice and theory, that works on the level of the bone. The alignment of the bones, the work of the deep muscles of postural support and the deep muscles in the pelvisare the focus areas of the work and the practice. We study and re-study the musculoskeletal system and itsfunctions. To achieve a deeper understanding of the musculoskeletal system and its function, we work with the physicalconcepts of weight, spatiality and gravity and how they are linked to the mechanics of the body, as well as to the structure of the bones..

In class we get to concentrate on ourselves as anatomical beings on a deeper level and make room for this in ourdaily lives as dancers and movers. By doing so, we also dedicate ourselves to sharing the room in time and space with others, sharing thisbodywork, knowledge, practice and experience of re-educating ourselves. Together we create a space ofconcentration and respect, for the body, for the work, for each other and ourselves.
