We'll be taking a look at floorwork, through the material of Flying Low. This is a technique initiated by David Zambrano that uses simple movement patterns and principles (such as spiralling and alternating between expansion and cohesion) to dance our whole selves in, out and along the floor with speed, efficiency... and pleasure! We'll take a detailed look at the material, breaking it down to find functions that work for each of us, then we'll put it back together for some full-bodied dancing!
We highly recommend long trousers (within reason!) and covered shoulders.
Our Level 3 classes are dynamic classes focusing on higher level technical abilities and an increase in physical fitness. Complex movement combinations and content will cover more advanced principles such as agility and the use of weight whilst simultaneously increasing musical awareness through a range of tempos and rhythms. You will increase your versatility in moving and introduce your own uniqueness to the movement with confidence.
