This contemporary dance class is hosted by different members of the Berlin based dance company FRANTICS. Eva Georgitsopoulou and Carlos Aller are taking turns teaching this class. They’ll both teach 3 to 4 weeks in a block before they switch.
This contemporary dance class focuses on creating a sense of physical power, energy and musicality while exploring our individuality and being available to the group energy and the entire space . It consists of two parts. We start with a physical improvisation in order to explore deep our movement awareness, to work the articulation of the body and to develop ones own movement and musicality. The participants are led to extreme positions, different qualities of movement and high speed of physicality. The class continues with short floor exercises and complex standing combinations with acrobatic elements. We aim to a create a long sequence that combines the tools of the class, in witch the participants are encouraged to play with dynamics and express themselves individually as dance performers.
Carlos’ Class will start with a inner meditation to feel your body and be able to make your movements deeper. The class is progressive, starting with warm up and improvisation which will developed to a higher movements. Carlos usually likes to teach some acrobatics diagonals depending on the level of the class and repertoire from “Frantics Dance Company” . Based on the mix between the tension and strengthens of Breaking movements and the softness of contemporary and release techniques mostly with floor works and slices trying to make them in a floating and organic way.
