Contemporary MasterClass with Helena Arenbergerová

Wednesday, December 12
Thursday, December 13
EDIT: 9 AM-10:15 AM
Cost: $12/class

We are excited to host a contemporary Masterclass with Helena Arenbergerová!

We will start warming up our body part by part, focusing on breathing, gradually developing potential of our body. During movement sequences we will focus on the natural connections
in the body, initiation and graduality of movement, on efficiency, recycling the energy of one movement to another, using the gravity and floor as a partner, looking for a balance between what you control and what you can let happen. Through improvisation we will search different movement qualities and musicality of movement. We will play games developing sense of rhythm and stimulating brain activity. Our meeting will end up with stretching and relaxation. The class supports proper breathing, active body posture, flexibility of joints, elasticity of muscles, coordination, spatial orientation, awareness of ourselves and the others, 3D thinking of moving. Takes place in a friendly atmosphere with the individual approach.
