SUMMIT WEEK August 25
15.45 - 17.45 single class
Break and Practice
In this practice sessions we will listen and dance to funky music and have a look at the vocabulary and conventions of Break Dance culture. Contrary to the general perception that you can only "break" if you have a lot of muscle power, coordination is more important. In this practice sessions, I will offer tips and methods that could allow you to acquire the skill to do these demanding, highly dynamic moves.
Using the Axis Syllabus to analyze and understand how inertial and gravitational forces act on our body, we will practice guided improvisation, somatic exercises and repetitive movement patterns to raise proprioceptive awareness, and take breaks for personal exploration.
This practice sessions are open level!
