Are you looking for a combination of exciting dancing and technique training? The classes of modern dance at CREA combine various modern and contemporary dance techniques with dynamic explorations. Within the structure of – warming up, technical training, final choreography and a cooling down – you get to work with momentum, gravity, the floor and expressive possibilities of movement. Both Sandra and Aissa are thrilled to share their creative insights with you and have fun while getting sweaty!
Focus points include:
- physical: flow and fluidity, activation and relaxation, gravity, elongation, dynamics, musicality and sensitivity of one’s own physical and in relation to space/the other.
- personal: personal presence, authenticity, interpretation of dance, clarity in intention, connection with your body.
Aissa likes to challenge the dancers to free themselves from the head and to shift their attention to the body, in order to achieve an authentic experience of freedom while dancing. In this way she hopes to create awareness for the expressive qualities and intelligence of the body, and for the language of movement that can encompass more than the correct execution of movements.
Sandra Kramerová is a dance artist with a background in contemporary/modern dance, improvisation and choreography. In her dance classes she focuses on building strength and stamina through dynamic exercises which are coupled with slower (and more somatic) tasks to inspire continuity and flow. Sandra zooms into explosive potential of movement and taps the dancers´ imagination through action based improvisations. Focusing on rigorous physical practice based on floor work, momentum and athleticism, Sandra encourages dancers to follow their interests and grow towards combining their background with (new) movement principles. If you are looking for ways to become a more versatile mover, to develop your dance skills and dance with strength and grace, join one of Sandra´s classes at CREA.
