Professional Class with Marie Chabert

Spring 2018


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

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

The class integrates creativity with technique to allow participants to develop their relationship with their physical, emotional, creative and social body.  Starting form a single anatomical-poetical reference, the class will shift perspective from the body in isolation, to the body in space, to the body as a group. 

The class will mix exploratory tasks with set material working with shifting weight, spirals, movement quality, dynamics and floor work, to engage the whole body as a physical instrument within a poetical landscape.
