The Practice Method

Noémie will be offering a class on Practice, Yuval Pick's method. Practice aims at expanding the physical and creative potential of dancers. It gives you the tools to experience movement in real time and share your expressivity with others. Practice enriches virtuosity through precise exercises and improvisation guided by playful, organic images.

Questions from Tanzplattform Rhein-Main:

What makes this class a training for dance professionals? Or put another way - what skills or practices are we doing that are support our position as professionals in the free scene in Frankfurt?

"Practice is a training method who aims to improve and deepen professional dancers’ awareness of their presence and physicality. We go through imaginary images to enhance movement quality while preparing the body for a full day of rehearsal. It's a super precise work on how to use our bodies even during improvisation. What kind of intention are you putting in each movement and how it can expand your virtuosity?"


Is this an improvisation class, a class where we learn phrases, or both?

"During class we explore a lot of sensations and qualities in different improvisation tasks and then we put all that information into choreographic phrases, transferring weight and performing big jumps."

Noémie trained at the Conservatoire de La Rochelle and then joined the Atlantique Ballet Contemporain.  From 2016 to 2018, she continued her training by joining the Ballet Junior de Genève (BJG). At the same time, Noémie decided to keep a solo, created at the end of the BJG, and to continue its creation. In October 2018, she joined the CCNR/Yuval Pick as a freelancer for the creation of Vocabulary of need. She became a permanent dancer in May 2019. In addition to performing the company’s entire repertoire, Noémie teaches Yuval Pick’s Practice Method to both professionals and amateurs.
