Technique / style:

Marie teaches a joyful yet challenging class that is tailored to the individual needs of the participating dancers. Using the principles of Limon technique, her class utilises the use of weight and breath to encourage movement that works with the body rather than against it.

Class Description

Level 2 provides more challenging phrases and movements that incorporate multiple exercises and movement. Not only will you develop your technical knowledge but you will also begin to introduce performativity into your practice allowing for greater expression. Alongside this your body will develop an increased physicality including core strength and balance; allowing you to have greater movement efficiency. You will also be encouraged to work more with the live music and given freedom to play with timings and counts.
