About the class: 

For these dance classes we will focus on musicality and sociality in our dancing. Through the use of simple rhythm patterns and playing with syncopation and synchronisation we will enhance listening and attend to the conversational aspect of dancing. Due to covid-19 we wont use touch or dancing hand in hand, but an approach inspired by social dancing will still guide.

We will work with the roles of leading and following and make use of sensibilities around responding, receiving, recognising, initiating and tuning in to one another’s movements and moods.

I like dance as chemistry as much as architecture. Rather than centring play around spatial bodily arrangements I want to emphasise the social context of dancing, bodies and gesture and how we become in each other’s presence. I want to work with how we affect, motivate, bring out, support, stay alongside, and dare one another to discover playful modes of dancing and being together
