Professional Class: Annie Lok
Through a combination of improvisation, set material and partnering/contact work classes focus on tuning awareness to develop connectivity, clarity and efficiency in movement. Working with the structures within (muscles, ligaments, bones and organs) as a potential for strength and support to our extremities - classes often shift from deep anatomical explorations into full out solo, duet and ensemble dancing. Zooming in to detailed physical sensation and out to the tone of the whole room; we will be shifting our attention back and forth from inside to outside.
Designed to nurture reflective and critical dialogue with our dancing, classes are rigorous, playful and experimental
