Since 2018 Anna has been choreographing: ”its a new journey for me, full of emotions, mysteries, new experiences, and, surely, openings on different levels. It’s a beautiful path between learning, exploring other personalities and satisfaction of searching, finding, loosing and letting go.”
Class begins with a floor-work warm up where focus will be on releasing, softening, exploring gravity and activating our centres. Gradually we will begin to move off the floor finding flow, momentum and playing with different kinds of impulses in an organic way of moving. The last part
of the class will present a challenging yet engaging dance phrase.
Throughout the class we will focus on getting a better understanding of how ones body works, learning how to move with ease and efficiency. The class may also include elements of improvisation which would emphasize a deeper research of principles introduced earlier while still allowing every student to dance in their own unique way.
My aim is not to insist on the only way of moving, but to help expand on ones variety of movement qualities. I invite student to be present in the moment and cherish the journey.
