Klassenbeschrieb // Class Description
Improvisation class  “The mindful body in motion”

The improvisation classes encourage movers of all kinds and of all levels to experiment, question, dare and most importantly, to dance.

These creative sessions are based on the modus operandi of Les Ballets C de la B. Through free-form guided improvisations, participants are invited to investigate various emotional and physical states. The main focus of theses classes is to invite the partakers to delve deeply into their authentic physicality and to awake their interest and awareness of what dance can be.


Klassenbeschrieb // Class Description

The participants are led through a series of structured exercises incorporating elements of Release technique, floor work, breath exercises and simple yoga practice in order to gradually and steadily prepare them for complex patterns and challenging choreographic sequences. The aim of integrating those different but complementary elements is to focus on achieving technical excellence, increasing body/mind awareness and understanding the breath and energy flow. Particular attention is placed on the intrinsic relation between movement and breath, proprioception, the efficient use of energy flow, core stability, spinal range of motion while the class stimulates the cardiovascular system and increases stamina through series of organic, fluid, high paced, upside down and in-out of the floor sequences.
