This is an energetic floor work class, focusing on stamina, transferring weight, creating space in the body and looking into ways of using the floor to facilitate movement. The class starts by mobilising the spine and finding length in the body, drawing upon ideas and pathways we use when standing and the similarities when transferring them to the floor.

This focus develops around a fast, dynamic yet technically detailed movement quality with an emphasis on where movement begins. Using efficient methods of moving to enable us to transition to and from the floor, preparing the body to develop its strength and power and challenge new extremes when moving through space.
