Contemporary Dance Technique with Maria Vincentelli
Maria Vincentelli will teach a release based class.
This will be a release based class which focuses on the natural rhythms of flow and fluidity we all have in our bodies, using length and spirals, the fall and catch, and the pouring and anchoring of our weight to move us through space. This is a chance to take playful risks with your own movement and indulge in our natural responses to different types of music.
Maria trained at LABAN and London Contemporary Dance School. As an apprentice Maria performed as the Queen in BalletLORENT’s fairytale production of Rumpelstiltskin, is a resident performance artist for Cheeseburn Grange in Northumberland and has recently been working with musician Ash Koosha on YONA, a performance using motion capture technology. Her personal movement practice is inspired by the concept of spontaneity, and how it’s qualities of freedom, humanity, curiosity and playfulness can be applied to both improvisation and set movement, and help us to find our own voice as performers.
Our classes take place at SDT studio at Dundee Rep and are open to those aged 14+ with more than two years dance experience. Pay on the day for £7 / £5 SSCD students + concessions pay on the day.
