Morning Dance Class

Contemporary dance

Meri Pajunpää

This class consists of body work, improvisation tasks and set material. During the warm up we bring our focus to the present moment, creating heat inside the body with breath and movement. During the class we work with movement principles such as muscular tension and release, pushing and pulling from the floor and from each other, momentum, speed and anatomical precision. We look for awareness of our whole body in movement, learning to shape our energy according to each situation.

In the improvisation part we look at tools for composition, setting up a common playground in time and space, as well as tools for widening our personal movement vocabulary. Through limitations, playfully opening windows to unfamiliar places. Searching for new coordinations within the body to create surprising dances.

As much as I am interested in working on very concrete movement principles, I would like to keep as an underlying thread through the class, that our dancing is always in relation to something, to each other, to the music or to the space.
