When: 5th, 12th, 19th & 26th of June
Charlotte’s class is based on a strong belief that dancing is a highly physical, and highly intelligent art – but most importantly, it is fun. Emphasis is placed on the body as sensory and tactile as we move between set material, experiential exercises and improvised scores. Movement grows from the ground, supporting organization and clarity through developmental movement patterns. These basic patterns – help us find connections that can sustain us as we dance. If time allows we will play within the grounds of some of Charlotte’s new choreographic interests.
