Professional Class 

All professional classes at The Place are intended for high-level dancers only. These classes offer professional dancers an opportunity to maintain their skills and abilities, network with other professionals and even maybe find new projects to work on.

If you are an amateur dancer, there are lots of other opportunities for you to engage with. Browse our adult classes programme for more information.

These classes require professional standards from participants and early arrival is required for warm up.

About the class 

RelaxtoErupt is a physically demanding practice helping to discover our 1% - 100% of energy within movement. The practice delves into the different types of disciplines I have studied and am influenced by, contemporary, floorwork, kathak, boxing and movement practicality we may lose over time. The class is structured so that we will focus on different aspects throughout the week. Key components are clarity, self-motivation, curiosity, pushing ourselves and our bodies out of where we find comfortable. We will perform drills exploiting how expansive the body can be whilst coming in and out of the floor effortlessly.
