TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES

FELDENKRAIS WORKSHOP WITH ROEE BE'ER

We are opening up 15 spots for the public to participate in the workshop with company members. Open to dancers 16+ in high school and college, or working at a pre-professional or professional level.

Roee Be'er is working intensively with groups of dancers, some of whom dance in few of the most renowned israeli dance companies (i.e Batsheva, Vertigo). The group lesson is a movement “experiments field”, where we explore various movement principles and ideas, find new and non-habitual ways to move with more ease and expand the physical movement abilities.

The lesson is 1.5 hours long, consisting of a classic Feldenkrais method “Awareness through movement” training, followed by an integration and partner practice, based on practices from Aikdio and other movement techniques and methods. The lesson is an ongoing conversation with the dancers needs and interests, so it unfolds in a very unique way. The dancers testify that the lessons benefit them not only by relieving physical pains and difficulties, but also by improving the physical abilities and creating clear and profound integration with their dance and creative work.

**Only 15 spots available. Open to dancers ages 16+**

OPEN COMPANY CLASS

For our upcoming Open Company Classes, we are having a special Guest Teacher for an 8-week series!! ROSANNA TAVAREZ is a former Guest Artist with LACDC and 1 of 2 certified Countertechnique teachers based in Los Angeles.

The Countertechnique class is an intermediate/advanced contemporary technique class. It stretches, coordinates and strengthens the body, making the dancer sweat, build stamina and really move. The class starts with a recurring set of exercises, allowing dancers to investigate the Countertechnique principles in detail. The second half of the class consists of changing components, working towards luscious movement combinations and jumping at the end. The Countertechnique class results in dancers using less energy, losing their fear of taking risks and gaining speed in changing direction. Pre-Registration not required.

COMMUNITY CLASS

Community Class is for dancers of any age or ability who are interested in exploring modern dance at a beginning/intermediate level. Taught by Eva Angeloff, we will practice release technique, finding the ways that gravity influences movement initiation, flow and ease, and body articulation. There will be a structured center warm up, juicy floor work, brief sequences of choreography, and opportunities to explore and create. All are welcome! Pre-Registration not required.
