1. - TRAINING
We will work in class with the idea of projecting different parts of the body to imaginary points in space playing with the energy we project, collecting, changing it and turning it, but never leaving it.
Proper use of the hands and feet is basic. Balance and off-center are important points and weight of our body release giving more lightness to the movement, traveling to different levels: flat, medium and jumps.
Basic technique will work shifts and jumps that allows us to move with greater stability for jumps and receptions.
At the end of the class will gather the elements used in a choreography frase that will grow for two weeks.
