Dynamic Floorwork & Improvisation
The class begins with a warm-up awakening the functional anatomy of the body to explore technical principles of the Floorwork. Followed by a physical endurance phase focusing on explorative Improvisation exercises as well as movement patterns and combinations using the physical law of expansion and cohesion, the spiral, the centrifugal energy, and gravity. The class ends with a cool-down to regenerate the flexibility of the body. The aim is to discover the Floorwork technique as a tool to increase awareness and the own movement potential to provide an innovative basis for improvisation. The training draws on inspirations such as Spiral Dynamics, Flying Low (David Zambrano), and Release Technique to move in and out of the floor efficiently and with ease.
