The objective of the workshop is to learn how to use the floor when moving. Lali is giving great emphasis on working with the base of the feet and thus supporting the entire movement. Identifying the source of the weight is used as a tool to finding freedom in dancing. During the workshop we shall be studying rhythm and voice as a source to discovering new paths for physicality.
The class is composed of warm up and phrase materials which prepare the body and the mind for further improvisation tasks. Much importance will be given to the precision and speed of movement while retaining the continuity and fluidity of movement and its details.
