About the class/Listen to the music!
I am currently exploring groove and flow in my class.
I guide the dancers without stopping. I start with easy exercises, so everyone can follow. I focus on core strength and getting warm from the inside and out. I continue to guide through a session of walking, running and rebound. The tempo will become more intense the further we go. I continue with giving tasks based on rhythm and to listen to the music and become the music.
At the end of the class I teach a phrase or we do a longer task related session together.
My focus is to play and research together with the dancers and the aim is to connect to the pleasure of moving.
