Kurs with Daniele Di Felice

The class is based on the different ways each one of us approaches the floor and the fully expression of our body's physicality. The first part consists on a brief conditioning and strengthening warm up; I usually give some time for a guided improvisation so the dancers can explore their body and the way to move, following simple and easy rules that can help and suggest new ideas to better move through space. From basic and simple movements across the floor, to get the body used to, we move into more difficult and tricky moves, towards and against gravity using the power of MOMENTUM, which is fundamental especially in this part. My goal is to make sure the dancers have fun and also to break the barriers we always put on ourselves, to go beyond what we are used or comfortable to do on a daily basis and to explore and discover new ways to move and express ourselves.
