Class and Composition Lab Descriptions:

Class begins with a set sequence of continuous stretches and articulate movements of the spine and limbs that will allow us to connect with ourselves, our body and its center.We will place focus on breathing to help us warm up, energize and tone the muscles and joints as well as to open awareness of the balanced body and its/our presence in the space. In continuance, we will explore a succession of moves and some traveling exercises to challenge the body to be available and efficient in relationship to one another’s. We will put into action a dynamic-high-energy dance phrase that encompass floor work, technical sequencing and acrobatic body vocabulary, all of which I have acquired through my years of contemporary dance work in Europe. Gisela is a creative who uses improvisation and explorative formations so the body can articulate one’s sense of character. Her classes always have the aim of growing one’s individual voice through movement in order to share it with others.

The Composition session will allow the participants to explore and develop their own physical language and to enter the process of creating dance and movement compositions both individually and in a group. Participants will have the opportunity to ‘deepen’ towards the three stages of creating dance- creative process, editing, and performing.

 

You have the option of taking:

Class ($50/month) or Class + Composition ($60/month)

*Keep in mind that the composition session will be limited to 10-12 participants, and we will ask for a minimum of one Season commitment.
