In Ben’s class you’ll be taking a look at floor work, through the material of Flying Low.

He explains “This is a technique initiated by David Zambrano that uses simple movement patterns and principles (such as spiralling movements that alternate between expansion and cohesion) to dance our whole selves in, out and along the floor with speed, efficiency… and pleasure! We’ll take a detailed look at the material, breaking it down to find functions that work for each of us, then we’ll put it back together for some full-bodied dancing!

I highly recommend long trousers (within reason!) and covered shoulders.”
