Class is a fusion of modern dance techniques within a modern dance expression. It consists of technical and creative work. I firstly build responsiveness of strong, flexible and dancing body in space; therefore the attention is focused on the awareness of functions of the centre and pelvis in horizontal position. Afterwards, I set exercises in vertical position of the body according to the curve principle and relaxation of the upper body. The creative part is based on researching dancer’s own movement and spatial structure.
