Profitraining with Dor Mamalia

Anchor Technique
 Each class is divided into a variety of blocks that progressively develop one’s body and space awareness. We firstly focus on essential movement functions and conscious usage of the body’s anatomy through movement improvisation. By implementing within the class our knowledge of pilates, anatomy, Feldenkrais, ballet, floorwork, and other dance techniques, we stimulate understanding of the participant’s individual capabilities, which later may lead to reaching new levels of complexity in the movement. We address and explore topics such as time, space, fantasy, musicality and one’s ability to find and employ internal and external “anchors” to become a more efficient and detailed mover. We will spend time exploring the spine’s and pelvis’ ranges of motion, being the fundaments of the Human Fields’ language movement. The workshop offers a specific, detailed insight into the principles of movement by building up dynamic and very physical dance combinations. They are characterized by features such as rubato, asymmetric pulses, and philosophy of motion emerging from polycentrism, opposite forces, negation, groove, and rotations.
