Professional Class with Feet off the Ground

Autumn 2018


Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Professional Class 

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

A synthesis of Contact Improvisation, Partnering and Release Techniques, these classes are physical, challenging and dynamic. Through improvisation tasks and games, set solo and partnering phrases and jamming, we will explore the play between the set and the spontaneous.

Expect to fly, fall, respond, connect and flow through the class with each day being led by a different company member.

About Feet off the Ground

Feet off the Ground is an all-female performance collective making innovative, physical and engaging dance in varying settings and contexts.

We represent women in a strong, physical capacity and challenge audiences to perceive the female form in nuanced ways. We cross movement languages and utilise Contact Improvisation and Partnering techniques as a common ground for research and performance devising. Championing the female body, we push physicality and work against the traditional roles of women within dance. Our principles are simple; explore the unfamiliar, take risks and think big with artistic integrity.

Feet off the Ground have performed across the UK, Europe and internationally. The collective members have worked with a number of established choreographers including Punchdrunk, Gecko Physical Theatre Company, Sarah Dowling, Saju Hari, Jamaal Burkmaar and Tom Dale Company.

The collective have taught extensively across the UK including at The Place, London Contemporary Dance School, Trinity Laban, Dance4, CAT schemes and The BalletBoyz Dancer’s Course.
