Patterns for 3-Dimensional Bodies

Class is based on a strong belief that dancing is enjoyable and physical and intelligent in equal measures. Emphasis is placed on patterns as sensory and tactile, giving different angles and insight into individual possibility and preferences. These patterns are a means to an end – helping us find useful information with our bodies, not to remember ‘steps’ or co- ordinations, but to find connections that can sustain us as we dance.

Sometimes class starts from the ground, supporting organisation and clarity through developmental and evolutionary movement patterns. Sometimes class grows out of relational play with others or the space we share.

End sequences are offered as templates for individual play and experimentation. Improvisation is always welcome.


Please note, you are welcome to join the Groundwork Pro team for an open meeting, after Fridays morning class at Chapter, 11.15am.

An access fund is available for Wales based artists who may need assistance with travel, accommodation, childcare, costs associated with disabled access or other costs incurred.

Pay £12 on Wednesday to secure your place for the week or drop-in for £5 per class. 4 places are bookable in advance if your circumstances require (i.e travelling to attend, or you need to arrange assistance or childcare) please contact us to book.
