Professional Class: Mathieu Geffré
Mathieu Geffré's class lightly borrows from the fundamental patterns of Cunningham technique, supported by notions of Fasciatherapy. The combination of those techniques allow the dancer to establish verticality without compromising the notion of movement in an economic way.
Supported by an important sense of musicality, the class focuses on using the stabilizers and a strong centre in order to find the efficiency of movement, with the intention of building a body that is centered but alert and in motion. Starting from some simple standing exercises, the class will slowly challenge the body's reactivity constantly remembering how pleasurable the practice should be. Technical though accessible to all professionals, the training will open the possibility to personal development through the rigour of a structured frame.
