The Only Five Combinations You’ll Ever Need!
This series of workshops will cultivate effortless dance performance that is grounded in simple, clean statements; a sensitive understanding of the music; and fully formed well- executed movement.
In each workshop, I will teach a suite of movements, grounded in folklore, that are beautifully suited to the musical context we are exploring. Each movement suite will form one long combination through which we will explore the depth of the movement, feeling, expression and musicality. Each long combination will form the central mechanism of our practice as we repeat, refine and repeat the movement again and again.
Repetition will be an important element in the learning and teaching presented in this workshop and students will benefit from the power of repetition. In this way, this workshop series is inspired by Ashtanga Vinyasa yogic practice. By limiting ourselves to a fixed set of movements that will be repeated over and over again, we will create the physical, mental and emotional space to master the movement and the movement within the music. Said another way, to help us get out of our heads and into the feeling and the music. In a world that often demands instant solutions, variety and ‘something new’ almost every day – this may be the most challenging aspect of this workshop!
I look forward to seeing you in January!
