Class Description

Luke teaches a dynamic released-based class which is informed by improvisation and somatic practices. Usually beginning with improvisation/experiential anatomy, he then explores set exercises and sequences to develop bodily organisation and connectivity. As well as technical challenges, a sense of dynamic versatility, a playful questioning and finding both clarity and spontaneity are encouraged.

The class is accompanied by musician Bobby Demers.
