MORNING CLASSES

From March till July most mornings we will host a FLYING LOW class, mostly taught by David Zambrano himself, and occasionally by Milan (Mino) Herich and Paola Madrid.
One of the weeks, it will be Youri De Gussem teaching a contemporary dance class, including his experience of Flying Low.

FLYING LOW class:
This class, developed by David Zambrano, focusses mainly on the dancer’s 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.

Dates:
Most weeks always Mondays till Fridays from 4 march till 5 July 2019
(Except Not on 25.3.-29.3. because of ContreDanse-event and Not on 3.6 -14.6, because of ConnectLab-event)

Time:
Most weeks 11.00-13.00
(Except different on 17.6.-26.6., when it will be 10.30-12.30)

Class description:
Through the class, we will seek our body physically to go toward a self-transcendence and find ways to recycle, renew our energy beyond exhaustion while remaining in motion.
The class will be mainly based on floorwork technics, inspired by flying low and others approaches by using the floor as a dance partner. With those technics, we will seek to better understand our mechanics, the physical laws that govern our movement, in search of a field of richer possibilities in our dance and out of our comforts zones.
We will then, through different exercises, dance phrases and improvisations, overcome our limits, our personal boundaries and bring our physical and bodily skills to another level.

What interests me is to see how far the human body can go without physical damage. It will be a very physical, dynamic and emotional experience that will connect the body and the mind.
