Remixed Release @ Impulstanz 2013

 

Strength, alignment, fluidity and economy… and fun!

This contemporary class is based on Release Technique and Floor work and includes Contact and other forms of Improvisation. Aspects of Yoga, Alexander Technique, Pilates and Skinner Releasing are also often part of the class. The focus is on the body’s alignment and on working economically in movement through emphasis on direction, sequencing, impulse and fluidity. Part of working economically is the use of the centre and internal musculature, hence reinforcing and learning to access that power is a major objective.

The most important for me, however, is the enjoyment factor – otherwise why dance?!”

Ce cours de danse contemporaine est basé sur la technique Release et le travail au sol (Floor Work), et inclure la danse-contact et autres formes d’improvisation. Des éléments de Skinner Releasing, de yoga, de Pilates et de technique Alexander y seront aussi souvent abordés. La technique Release se concentre sur la respiration, le centre, l’utilisation du squelette, le placement du corps, l’utilisation et le renforcement des muscles internes plutôt que des muscles externes. On utilise la gravité, l’élan et la suspension pour donner de la fluidité et économiser son énergie.

Le dernier aspect du cours, mais non le moindre, est son côté ‘fun’. La danse est une affaire de plaisir… sinon, pourquoi danser ?!
