description In my classes, I like to facilitate a welcoming, energetic and encouraging environment for the participants.
The class begins with a playful warm-up to tune in with ourselves in space and connect with each other, preparing safely for dance practice. We will focus on floorwork technique through various exercises and dance phrases. There will be some exercises informed by Flying Low, a technique which was developed by David Zambrano. This technique focuses mainly on the dancer’s relationship with the ground, utilizing simple movement patterns, which explore cohesion and expansion and trains the body to move in and out of the floor efficiently with speed. Towards the end of the class, we are going to learn a longer dance sequence in which we will add more material each time.

Through this class, we train our body to become physically strong, alerted and agile. We become friends with the floor, learn to use our weight efficiently, play with different dynamics and work towards expanding our movement vocabulary. Nourishing our bodily awareness we move with a greater sense of our own bodies, the others, and space, but also with a greater pleasure for movement.

Are you looking for a course to develop your technical knowledge while you are having fun? Then this class is for you!

Expect to play, fall, spiral, roll, release, jump, connect, make contact, enjoy the pleasure of motion… Looking forward to meeting you on the dance floor!

The Countertechnique® class is a contemporary dance technique class. It stretches, coordinates and strengthens the body, making the dancer sweat, build stamina and
really move. The class starts with a recurring set of exercises, allowing dancers to investigate the Countertechnique principles in detail. The second half of the class consists of changing components, working towards luscious movement combinations and jumping at the end. The Countertechnique class results in dancers using less energy, losing their fear of taking risks and gaining speed in changing direction.

“My main interest in moving is to find ways to connect and express ourselves through our bodies, I like to awaken the senses and the sensitivity to our environment through observing what is happening when we open a desire to move. Countertechnique empowered my dancing and gave my body more volume and presence, bringing the focus to the moment of action. By using the principles I could let go of my own judgment and rediscover my strength and joy of movement. It is a playful pathway where thoughts become experiences and my favorite way to start the day.”

Dance is an ever evolving organism. Within all disciplines it is apparent that over the years new styles emerge from older ones. One dance form in which this evolution is very clear is bellydance. Having its roots in the Middle East during the 17th and 18th centuries primarily in Egypt, Turkey and Lebanon. But it is believed to be much older. Throughout its history new styles of dance were born within the bellydance genre, for example one of the more recent being ATS (American Tribal Style Bellydance ) and Tribal Fusion Bellydance.

The latest edition in this evolution is the merging of Tribal Fusion Bellydance with Urban dance styles known as Urban Fusion Bellydance.

– An introductory course spread over five classes each delving into  combining bellydance with urban dance styles-

The classes will consist of beginner to intermediate bellydance techniques which will gradually level up during the course. On top of that we will layer on an urban dance form, by focusing on one discipline per class.

This course is for the belly dancer looking to add to their vocabulary or the mover/dancer looking for a new challenge.
