Kurs with Nadine Freisleben

The class focuses on the natural and instinctive movement repertoire of the individual body. We explore the abilities of the body and the mind to move in a non-regimented space and try to free ourselves from physical and psychological automatisms and evaluations. Dance elements from AfroContemporary have a great influence on the technique. The body is organized, structured and connected to its environment and in space by its weight. Starting from the base, the feet on the floor, to the top, the head in the clouds, we loosen the spine and neck to find permeability and awareness throughout the body. After the exercises become more physical and dynamic, following an energetic structure thus strengthening the deep muscles. This class is a mixture of western contemporary dance, dance acrobatics, floor work, pop and dance elements from Nigerian contemporary dance.
