FLYING LOW : This class, developed by David Zambrano, focusses mainly on the dancers’ relationship with the floor. The class utilises simple movement patterns that involve breathing, speed and the release of energy throughout the body in order to activate the relationship between the centre and the joints, moving in and out of the ground more efficiently by maintaining a centred state. There is a focus on the skeletal structure that will help improve the dancers’ physical perception and alertness. The class includes partnering work and movement phrases, which explore the primary laws of physics: cohesion and expansion.

TICTAC Art Centre will mostly offer “daily” Flying Low classes on workdays. David Zambrano has invited some of his favourite Flying Low disciples to come and share their knowledge at TICTAC. Some of the Flying Low guest teachers will be: Vittorio Bertolli, Sophia Rodriguez, Leila McMillan, Florian Vuille, Mat Voorter, Milan Herich and David Zambrano himself

About the class

In principle the classes are focused on people with experience in the movement, dancers, circus artists, physical theater, athletes or yoga practitioners.

From the yoga positions we generate movements that involve the whole body, using, in its right measure, strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, breathing and resistance. The classes are dynamic. We begin by heating and preparing the joints to then focus on the movements, which from the positions of Yoga, can vary between displacement, jumping, acrobatics, work in parthers, etc.

In October we have 1 week invited Leila Mc Millan (USA/UK) to teach the Flying Low class. She was with David in the 50 days intensive on Flying Low and Passing Through in Costa Rica in 2010. In 2010 she made it possible that Zambrano’s 50 villages project got presented as well at 10 places in Senegal. As a Venezuelan it was rather impossible for Zambrano to enter the UK so Leila had taken up the quest and challenge to teach there Flying Low and Passing Through with great success. We are very curious to experience how Leila has developed through the years sharing this work. She teaches at various dance programs in London and the rest of the UK, plus also in other countries from the Middle East, Asia, United States and South America.

She curated This Way, That Way (2015) at Lilian Baylis, Sadler’s Wells as a part of Wild Card. Her full length work Family Portrait (2015) has been presented throughout the UK. She was Artist in Residence at Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (2017) creating a n new work 3 fingers at arms Length, nominated for ‘Outstanding Choreography’ Hong Kong Dance Alliance Awards 2018.
