Release Ballet - The Joy of Movement

This training is a classical ballet class, but uses the principles of describing space and feeling movement that I have learned over the years improvising for Forsythe. The training is body friendly and teaches a few "tricks of the trade" on how to make our lines clearer and longer. We will also approach things through speed, which comes from my Balanchine training. Also, as the title suggests, I am always looking for ways to explore the fun of movement in ballet training, involving the whole body and noticing that ballet is still dancing. Even though ballet sometimes looks complicated, I try to show how natural it can be.

The Tanzplattform Rhein-Main is a project of Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and Hessisches Staatsballett, is made possible by the Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain and supported by the Cultural Office of the City of Frankfurt am Main, the Hessian Ministry of Science and Art and the Foundation Alliance [Aventis Foundation, BHF BANK Foundation, Crespo Foundation, Hans Erich and Marie Elfriede Dotter Foundation, Dr. Marschner Foundation, Stiftung Polytechnische Gesellschaft Frankfurt am Main].
