Morning Dance Class

The Dance for the day

Meri Pajunpää

In this class we will work through improvisation, as well as through some set material.
During the warm up we bring our focus to the present moment, creating heat and flow inside the body with breath and movement. Some of the technical elements of the class are principles such as mobility of the pelvis in relation to the rest of the structure, muscular tension and release, pushing and pulling from the floor and from each other and balancing through movement rather than through static positions. We look for awareness of our whole body in movement, learning to shape our energy according to each situation. Searching for new coordinations within the body to create surprising dances.

We will also look into some tools for instant 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.
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. Today’s dance is not the same as yesterday’s dance.
I’d like to invite the dancers to bring their own taste and color into the frame we are working in. To allow their whole personality enter into the dancing, letting the pleasure of moving drive us beyond our familiar limits
