‘Cuerpo Presente: The Inner Beast’, Contemporary dance training. Aims to support its participants in processing their inner organic sensations. Working consciously to perceive the vital moment, energy, and to integrate the body and mind in time and space continuously. Focusing in floor work & motion. Class includes a guided warm up with clear mobility tasks that consider energy management. We consider basic biomechanical principles each day, such as: mechanical and physical function in structure, external body ergonomics in space, gravity resistance, and vectors moving three dimensionally. Supported with elements of improvisation and partnering. We will seek to activate, strengthen, and raise awareness of the body in space from our bone structures and joints. With very physical joyful. Each session ends with spatial variation that has been built from the accumulation of the material explored. Making more complex level our dynamism, energy and memory. Individually, and in groups, we will follow the proposed rules, based on dialogues and agreements established during class, and connect them to what has been explored.
