Ballet for Contemporary Dancers Pt. 1
Eve Ganneau leads a class in ballet technique, allowing participants the chance to discover tools tranferable to other dance practices.
This class from Eve Ganneau is aimed at anyone willing to deepen their understanding of ballet technique in order to discover tools transferable to other dance practices. I will merge the tradition of ballet with the principles of the Feldenkrais® Method to offer a somatic and biomechanical approach to the technique.
The goal of this class is to encourage a sustainable dance practice, working with pleasurable, economical and anatomically adapted movements to minimise the risk of injury. We will cultivate an embodied state of awareness as a valuable way to attend the body, developing deep listening and fine tuning to learn about our own movement patterns, tendencies and styles, underlying equally forces and fragilities We will talk about the structure of the body to find a functional and well organised movement in accordance to our needs. Insisting upon musicality, dynamics and imagery, we will colour our dance and create space for new experiences.
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.
