Technique / style:
This class is a blend of Contact Improvisation’s approach to the body with the structure of the Contemporary Dance class. Mixing improvisational approaches with choreographed movement will articulate the soft athletics and multidirectional awareness of CI in solo movement. Forward, side and backward rolls, dives, knee slides, handstands, off axis patterns and floor surfing. Ultimately you will open space to fall, fly and release as we dance together with risk, humour and a vigorous physicality.
Open Level is suitable for anyone who has had over a years’ experience in either contemporary dance or ballet. Championing personal development, the focus in this class is less on technique and more on the individual quality and style of movement.
In 2001 Rick became a member of staff at London Contemporary Dance School where he continues to teach Composition and Improvisation. Rick is an internationally recognised Contact Improvisation teacher and has been invited to lead workshops in 12 different countries and more than 40 cities. He has been a guest teacher in many institutions and festivals such as CNDC Anger (France), National Taiwan University of Arts, Tanzfabrik Berlin, Freiburg Festival and The Royal Ballet School. I have taught company class for many companies including Punchdrunk, Rambert Dance Company and DV8.
