This is a physical Contemporary Class, which will involve strong, complex and technical sequences in and out of the floor, focusing on flexibility/a range of techniques/body awareness/performance/stamina and commitment throughout the session, improvisation will also be explored as part of self-development.
The significant factors for the workshop are to develop the dancers’ creative mind, drive from passion, determination, strength, and musicality and most importantly an intention/honesty in whatever choice they make throughout the classes.
A range of techniques will be taught in the class, a combination of Techniques that Kishore Kumar has been exposed to and learnt over time, including classworks of Umesh Shetty , Nanatte Hassal , Sue Peacock , Michael Whaites , Kynan Hughes to name a few.
The part improvisation class style has been inspired and developed from working/observing with Akram Khan Dance Company (Fusion of Kathak and Contemporary Dance) , Zfin Malta Dance Company , William Forsythe’s Technologies (WAAPA) , Jo Pollit & Michael Whaites (Improvsation Techniques), Oded Ronan (GAGA technique) and Graham Technique (Contraction Release).
The course takes the beginner through a series of stretches and warm up sequences working on flexibility – going into the fundamentals of ballet and contemporary techniques and self creativity in the improvisation/movement classes.
