Lenna Schouten

For whom
For intermediate and advanced dancers.

In this class we dive into our body, it’s rhythm, texture and dynamics. We ground, groove, move, flow, yield and explode. We play and challenge ourselves. We work on a strong technique and an adventurous risk-taking mindset to dance with maximum use of space, contrasting dynamic qualities and an ever changing dynamic balance. We play with the weight of bodyparts in space. We release and fall horizontally trough space. We will embody our imagination and articulate what is. You will get tools with which you can master your own process as a dancer to find freedom. With a continuous awareness of your body and the time and space around you we will find ways to stay available for movement at any time.
