Cunningham Based Contemporary Level 2 with Hannah Kidd


Hannah teaches a Cunningham based class that focuses on finding a healthy body alignment leading onto a more fluid centre practise. Taking inspiration from her work with Richard Alston Dance Company, Hannah's class aims to combine rhythmical shifts in space with empathy for musicality and dynamics.

Level description:

Level 2 provides more challenging phrases and movements that incorporate multiple exercises and movement. Not only will you develop your technical knowledge you will also begin to introduce performativity into your practice allowing for greater expression. Alongside this your body will develop an increased physicality including core strength and balance; allowing you to have greater movement efficiency. You will also be encouraged to work more with the live music and given freedom to play with timings and counts.
