Partnering Intensive: Shared Levitation with Alan Fuentes y Guerra
I teach Contemporary dance training with emphasis on floor work. We start the class by opening our channels of awarness. The warm-up is focused on passing through the whole body and expanding our flexibility and strength. We use the playfullness in our movement to connect to the natural flow of breath. With the help of exercises in different constellations – in a group, with a partner and alone – we listen to the weight of our body and direct it through space.
An important aspect of the training is the attention to the momentum in movement and on integrating changes of dynamic and musicality in short movement phrases. As techniques of inspiration for my class I use a lot the principles of Flying Low technique by David Zambrano as well as release technique mixed with my personal investigation. I like to establish a collective mind and body inside the class to enhance the group power giving an energetic push to the individual source of creativity.
