Professional Class: Ben McEwen
Flying Low is a technique initiated by David Zambrano that uses simple movement patterns and principles (such as spiralling and alternating between expansion and cohesion) to dance our whole selves in, out and along the floor with speed, efficiency... and pleasure! The Borough Hall at Greenwich Dance is such a great space with a beautiful slidey floor, so woven into the flying low we'll be taking a look at how to run without slipping and slide without stopping!
Long trousers and covered shoulders are highly recommended

Ben is a dancer. He graduated from Trinity Laban before going on to complete the training cycle at PARTS, where he had his first opportunity to study with David Zambrano, the initiator of Flying Low.
Now he regularly works as a performer and researcher for Vera Tussing, and is currently working with Francesco Scavetta and Charlotte Spencer Projects, alongside following his own interests, mostly revolving around ecology. He has taught technique classes and workshops throughout the UK and Belgium, including The London Contemporary Dance School, Trinity Laban and Destelheide. He also enjoys aikido, hiking, barefoot running and tea.
