1 hour class
A low impact dance class for anyone interested in exploring and expressing themselves through movement. No previous dance experience is required, as the movement vocabulary used in this class is purposely chosen from everyday pedestrian movements and gestures. If you can walk, wave and navigate through a busy street, you can certainly attend this class; it is all the movement experience you’ll need!
The class starts with a full body warm-up, to then develop to sequences involving upper and lower body as well as isolation's, such as footwork. As the class builds up, longer sequences are introduced and also a choreographic phrase, which encourages individual expression. Music is an integral part of each exercise and is chosen to act as another layer of inspiration and motivation.
Participants are encouraged to explore the movement capabilities inherent in their bodies, be ‘present’, occupy space and enjoy moving within their body and with others.
It is great fun and a fabulous way to exercise the entire body and to work on balance, strength, flexibility, and mental acuity!
