Jennifer-Lynn’s 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.
Live Physical Practice is donation based. If you have income at the moment donations are welcome but we do not expect payment from freelancers whose income has been disrupted by COVID 19.
If access issues due to e.g. a disability are a barrier to you being able to join Groundwork classes please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements confidentially
