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 safety, speed, efficiency... and pleasure!
The class takes a detailed look at the material, breaking it down to find functions that work for each of us, then putting it back together for some full-bodied dancing!
Long trousers and covered shoulders are strongly recommended for this class
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.
