The first part of the class consist of a basic warm-up to rise awareness of breathing, muscle tone and stability, as well as to improve physical strength. Alternating between games, technical exercises and challenging variations. Nadine teaches her students to appreciate free movement through a well-controlled core technique. Intense floorwork enhances the awareness of space,the centre of the body and support to be able to move safely, silenty and freely.
The students learn to use the right energy to rotate, jump and surprise.
Directed improvisations are an important component of the classes and develop the student ́s creativity in their movement and expression.
The second part of the class will be focused on partner work. In group or duo exercises the students will explore how to deal with the most challenging properties of partnering: confidence, weight, shared momentums, leading and indulging. During the workshop Gerspacher will teach prepared phrases and give time to experiment their own way to communicate freely.
We will PLAY, run, TAKE RISKS, shout, laugh,explore softness/ strength in our body, go out of our COMFORT ZONE, wake up our ENERGY, and of course: HAVE FUN.
