Partnering: Knut & Lito OBS! På Atalante
onsdag, 9 mars kl. 12:00 – 13:30
Class Description: In this class, we practice a wide range of physical mental abilities, through moving with other people. Dynamically guiding the group through the class setting, we focus mainly on weight sharing, leading/following, footwork and floor connection. We will insist on specific movements and techniques/mechanics, in order to achieve more freedom and possibilities in the improvisations, where the dances happen.
