Contemporary – The physical Performance
The class developes through exercise in which we focus on the comprehension of spyrals generation, in orther to reach the maximum performance with the less fatigue.
Through different combinations, the class explores a wide vocabulary of movements coming from different Contemporary techniques integrating elements and principals of other disciplines as capoeira and breakdance.
The class develops synergies through space and different dynamics using the full body possibilities, each exercise concentrates explosion of energies in concomitant with the control.
The movement associations we converge during the class appear to be unnatural but thanks to the spyral`s producing key point we disocover new poossibilites of taking advantages from every movement choice.
Through the lesson we create many on and off balance situations widening up the body activity; therefore we work on the stablity and all the possible ways to catch the body before falling, we learn how to allow ourselves to let go – to body contraints and fears.
The lesson developes on different levels in space, from floor combinations to jumps, the sequences are created focusing on the relation of the core center to the ground, as all the movements we generate come from there as a first human natural contraction from the first breath, we unfold this principal independently from which composition we defy.
