min. 6 participants | max 12 participants To send us your registration please follow the link ------------------------------------------------------ Dynamic Technique and Sequences | Rope and Fabric Dynamic technique is all about momentum. By finding the path of least resistance, releasing to gravity and exerting force at the optimal moment we can access a whole new vocabulary of release moves while making it look easy. In this series we’ll learn a range of different beats that are applicable to both fabric and rope. They are the glue that that turns our individual skills into larger phrases of dynamic choreography. Beats are our foundation and will open up a whole new vocabulary of dynamic entries, exits, releases and rolls. We’ll explore a range of these transitions in the context of larger sequences. This workshop would be perfect for fabric and rope students newer to dynamic work or wanting to expand their current vocabulary as well as more advanced students wishing to push their abilities, technique and repertoire. Pre-requisites: Participants must feel comfortable with a range of dynamic beats and hip key roll ups. Must be able to complete a straight arm & leg inversion. Level: Intermediate+ ----------------------------------------------------------
