LIFT & TRICKS
NUTRITION FOR DANCERS
TECHNIQUE: CLASSICAL BALLET AND FLOOR-BARRE
Ballet technique is the foundational principles of body movement and form used in ballet.
Floor-barre is a technique in ballet training that “takes the basic ballet barre training from the standing position to the floor, “taking the effort of standing out of the equation.”
We will work on ballet terminology, meaning, and precise body form and movement. Emphasis is placed on developing flexibility and strengthening the legs, feet, and body core as a strong core is essential for turns and many other ballet movements. The techniques found in classical ballet are a framework for many other styles of dance, including modern dance, jazz, contemporary, and lyrical.
A contemporary class with classical technique. Focusing on mind and body through fluid movement, dancers will build on their technique, musicality and strength. They will be confronted with the shift of weight within exploring the freedom of movement.
Expression of emotions in motion. Fusion of Modern, Jazz and Ballet, based on release technique, joy of flow and beauty of form. On Lucy’s class, dancers will be motivated to develop musicality, control and surprise their own body’s strength. They will be challenged to express artistry and move beyond the mechanics.
LIFTS AND TRICKS
This class is designed to present you the basic rules and techniques of dance lifts and acrobatic tricks. Working in pairs and small groups, students will learn how to trust and connect with their partner, as well they will develop strength, balance and a great awareness of their own body. Safety and playfulness guaranteed.
Exploring dancers’ organic movement and developing their creative mind. Within different set up situations, students will be encouraged to move in new, unconventional ways, trying to discover themselves and space around them. Dancers will be challenged to express their passion, determination and most importantly, play with their own material in a certain context.
A playful practice where students explore how a specific touch initiates movement of another person. Through technical exercises, games and partner work, they will create a movement dialog by initiating actions or reactions, making a contact, giving or receiving weight and building each other’s trust. Contact improvisation will help dancers to develop creativity, gain confidence in spontaneous movement and simultaneously connect with others through a different experience.
In this vinyasa flow practice we will strive for the alignment and the architecture of our body, which will help us gain full body strength and create flexibility, where needed for each individual. Focusing on foundational basics in yoga this class is opened for all levels with lots of opportunities to challenge yourself and develop deeper mind-body connection.
