For whom
This class is not for complete beginners. For questions about your level and the class please contact emilie (emilie@post-cie.com)

Please note you can continue this class in November with Floor Work in Group Choreography

In this course we will focus on our relationship with the floor. Using techniques of contemporary dance (inheriting from Marta Graham technique of the core, Doris Humphrey release technique, Steve Paxton’s material for the spine), we will work on developing ease, flow and fluidity moving into and out of the floor. The classes include breathing exercises and spine work to prepare the body’s joints to work efficiently with gravity. Participants will learn figures of Floorwork (spiral rolls, helix rolls, helicopter rolls, banana rolls) to develop their own vocabulary in this practice. Participants will work outside of the vertical alignment to experience the diagonal, cross-lateral, and horizontal while on the floor and standing.

Her choreographic productions, lectures, workshops, are presented in the Netherlands, the UK, and France.
