Movement and Improvisation Classes (May) with Kim Baraka

Movement and Improvisation Classes (May) with Kim Baraka

8€ - 15€
CLASS DESCRIPTION:
This class is meant for anyone with an interest in exploring movement as a way to express, connect, bring awareness, and create, with their bodies and minds. The aim is to create a non-judgmental, non-performative environment for anyone to explore the possibilities of movement of their own and other bodies, with a strong emphasis on awareness, sensation, authenticity and expression. Professional dancers will benefit from unlearning/relearning their very approach to movement, in its most organic way. Absolute novices will be encouraged to reach places they never explored before, both physically and mentally. And of course anyone in between those two extremes will hopefully find something valuable in this practice.
The class typically starts with a warm up that helps you mindfully connect with your body and senses while finding your physicality. It then moves on to exploring embodiment of ideas and qualities, while unleashing bodily creativity and intelligence, either individually, or in groups where trust has been established. The classes are open to all levels and experiences, from absolute beginners to professional dancers. Come with an open mind :)
