Class content

Sarah proposes to explore multiple notions such as the dynamics, texture and energy in order to discover some new body movements and to change the vision each one has of their own dance. The purpose is to let emerge our natural presence in the physical restraint.

Rhythm games, improvisation and danced exercises will allow students to reconnect with the instinct so that each person may find their own way to apprehend the movement. Sarah suggests therefore in her classes to share resources she learned through the companies she worked with, developing her own artistic vision.
