Contemporary Basics

Contemporary Basics

Contemporary Basics is a class dedicated to the foundations of contemporary dance. The fundamental techniques provide a foundation for the many expressions of contemporary dance. Through a series of structured sequences we explore swings, curves, weight transfers and foot articulations. This class is a great place to begin if you are new to contemporary dance. It is also an opportunity to become more embodied in other dance styles, learning the mechanics of movement and moving with more potential and ease. This class is also beneficial for seasoned dancers as it provides conditioning and practice in further developing the basic techniques that can be taken into other classes and choreographies.

Curious Body

Curious Body

Curious Body is a fun explorative practice of movement & dance creation. In these sessions we aim to drop into a state of interest & awareness generating movement that is articulate & connected to our all sensing body. There are many tools to support this enquiry and Kimberley has been developing Curious Body over the last four years honing her ability to create a space for this kind of engaging movement to occur. The sessions also move through a creative composing space where we play with crafting what is emerging as we improvise as individuals, explore ensemble composition & responsive play. Though Kimberley teaches Contact Improvisation, please note that Curious Body is not C.I.

It is fun and open to all levels of movers. It is also an accumulative practice; the more you come the more you discover.

Movement Research

Movement Research

Movement Research is a laboratory for dropping in to the body, listening with intention and moving from impulse. It serves as a playground, a place to explore beyond habitual ways, witness the expression of the self and take care of what your body needs. Using imagery and textures while researching along with others stimulates new possibilities and a sort of co-creation of the moment. No dance experience necessary, everyone can access the benefit of connecting to their body and their unleashed movements.
Contemporary

Contemporary

Contemporary Dance is a vocabulary based movement class where structured dance exercises are practiced in order to develop the skills and strengths required to achieve complex combinations of choreographed and/ or free form movement. Foundation principles explored in this class include natural flow and fall of weight, joint release and recovery, momentum for movement efficiency. Toras’ clear focus on alignment and technique is tempered by a sense of fun and playful discovery. Those who are new to, or returning to contemporary dance will enjoy the friendly, non judgmental culture within the class.
