Professional Class with Eva Recacha

20-24 March

All professional classes at The Place are intended for high-level dancers only. These classes offer professional dancers an opportunity to maintain their skills and abilities, network with other professionals and even maybe find new projects to work on.

If you are an amateur dancer, there are lots of other opportunities for you to engage with. Browse our adult classes programme for more information.

These classes require professional standards from participants and early arrival is required for warm up.

About the class

Eva’s class draws from her wide experience as a maker, dancer and teacher. This week she will focus on exploring effort and rhythm in movement, and she will share some of the methods used in her work to create moving partnerships based on rhythmic mechanisms. The class will be based on exploratory tasks of an improvisational nature, with clear parameters to focus our practice. Eva’s class grows in pace and physicality, deeply rooting the body.
