Class Description

Contemporary class : Movement Class

Peter’s class is about working with powerful physicality related to the floor and air. The focus of the class is to develop movement in different levels - up and down positions, shifting support and balance in different parts of the body and handstand work. His inspiration for the class comes from every living moment that he senses in his life. 

 

The class is started with full power by playing games that wake up the body and mind. Improvisation or open dancing, will be the tools to start. Later we slow down and focus on the short exercises that connect to final phrases which will end the class. 

 

Rhythmically we extend and shift movement  from the floor phrases in the air and down again, using speed and efficiency of the body, supporting action and fearlessness. In a playful environment, Peter wants to work with instinct to discover different kinds of movement possibilities. The point of his class is to develop trust among the group and build safe conclusions to difficult actions.
