Professional Class with Tommaso Petrolo

Spring 2020


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

Technique / Style:

The classes are structured incorporating both technical and improvisational elements guiding the dancers through an efficient and functional warm up. In the first half Tommaso gives freedom to the body to express its needs as much as requires a technical base as a support. The second part of the class is dedicated to choreographic composition in which the dancers learn a musical and dynamic sequence. The dancers will be asked to quickly access a very intricate and musical language, to break out of the movement codification dance imposes on our bodies in order to give it complete freedom and expressivity.
