"Min klass följer i grunden balettens uppbyggnad men är anpassad för moderna dansare. Jag fokuserar mycket på musikalitet och att det ska vara dansant och organiskt. Jag brukar variera musiken mellan olika musikstilar i min klass. Allt från jazz, populärmusik, folkmusik, balettmusik mm. Detta tror jag kan hjälpa dansarna att förhålla sig friare till rörelserna och att göra rörelsen till sin egen och inte falla in i invanda mönster."

"Jag kör en ganska klassisk och basic grundläggande jazzuppvärmning som innehåller lite av det mesta och för hela kroppen. Lite uppmjukning, lite yoga, lite danselement, och teknik. Sen kör jag diagonaler med fokus på piruetter, grand battements och hopp. Sedan avslutar jag med koreografi. Gillar att kasta ut mycket material på en gång, lite som en auditionworkshop. I mitt koreografimaterial vill jag lägga fokus på de små detaljerna, stilförståelse, teknik och uttryck."

Gaga is the movement language developed by Ohad Naharin throughout many years, parallel to his work as a choreographer and artistic director (1990-2018) of Batsheva Dance Company.
Gaga classes are predicated on a deep listening to the body and to physical sensations. The instructions are deployed to increase awareness of and further amplify sensation, information is layered, building into a multisensory, physically challenging experience. While many instructions are imbued with rich imagery, the research of Gaga is fundamentally physical, insisting on a specific process of embodiment. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening the body and adding flexibility, stamina, agility, and skills including coordination and efficiency while stimulating the senses and imagination.
"Gaga/people classes offer a framework for users to connect to their bodies and imaginations, experience physical sensations, improve their flexibility and stamina, exercise their agility and explosive power, and enjoy the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.
Gaga/people classes are open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. No previous dance experience is needed."
Repertoire and Choreographic tasks
"In these session we will learn material form Lee Brummer’s recent repertoire of work and play with choreographic tasks.
The repertoire material is physical, detailed and story telling where we will work on the shift of dynamics, textures and the use of different engines in the body to create and experience a range of. We will work with range, choices and decision making within the set material. "

"The class will have a dynamic released based feel, using phrases and choreographic sequences to warmup the body and mind, systemically. Fundamentals including the core, use of weight and breath will be worked on throughout. The class will incorporate floorwork, traveling, jumps and phrases. A sense of flow, connection with ourselves and others and tuning will be the key themes of the week. I hope we can share some good feelings, some fun and some hard work. "

"Med en stark bas i jazzens dynamiska grunder: låg tyngdpunkt, suspension, musikalitet och form har jag byggt upp en klass där du som deltagare ska få möjlighet att arbeta igenom kroppen och få med dig inspiration in i din egen verksamhet, vare sig du undervisar eller är dansare. Klassen innehåller en gedigen uppvärmning med fokus på att bygga upp styrka och flås. Detta följs av förflyttningar över golvet och avslutas med en längre koreografi. Ibland väver jag även in improvisation i klassen med utgångspunkt i ett fysiskt eller musikaliskt utforskande.
Jag är starkt influerad av min samtid och försöker inkorporera flera av jazzens olika stilar och uttryck – utan att för den skull släppa dess tradition."

Improv and sequencing hybrid class
Week 27 Wednesday and Friday , 5 and 7 July Kl. 9.30-11.00
"Contemporary classes are a blend of improvisation and led-sequencing to a killer
soundtrack and sometimes the odd pop song. The first part of class focuses on exploring
and developing qualities and sensations to reach a full bodied, dynamic flow through
improvisational tasks. These are interspersed with explorations of technical tools and forms
aimed at unlocking their potential to aid our dancing. Classes end with a deep-dive with the
knowledge of the improvisations into longer, complex sequences that also hone memory,
picking-up and performance presence skills."

"In Vinyasa yoga we string together postures meant to stimulate and invigorate the senses and the heart. The intention is to build fluidity and connection between breath and movement. Yoga practice allows me to feel and discover the possibilities for nourishing and sustaining myself through full body strengthening and stretching. I lead playful vinyasa classes with arm balances, inversions and twists while creating entries into listening. I want us to use this listening to connect to a child-like curiosity and wonder and desire to explore deeper and play more."

"Embodied movement is about exploring, sensing and listening. An embodied and explorative improvisation based practice, bringing in elements from yoga, authentic movement, Breath work and the felt experience of being a human body.
In this series of morning practice you are invited to journey into the rhythm of your own body. Allow yourself to explore and play and allow the practice to become a call to come home to yourself.
Breathing is of great importance for our ability to feel our body and our inner emotional life. It is the gateway to our emotions and the connection between body and mind that connects the conscious and the unconscious in us.
Movement nourishes our entire system, our muscles and our skeleton. Movement nourishes our emotions and helps what is stagnant to move.
Movement creates life, flow and joy. From our feet, to our organs, to our nervous system, to the soul and to the brain and all the way back"
“Our bodies are amazing, and I believe in healing and health through movement, stillness, laughter, curiosity and love. Resources that are within all of us. ”
Dancing, movement and meditation have always been a big part of my life. For more than 15 years, with the whole of Europe as my workplace, I have worked as a professional dancer, project manager, choreographer and educator.
Since my body has always been my primary work tool, and that I as a dance artist have often been drawn to more extreme physical expressions. I started practicing Yoga in the late 90’s. I quickly developed a loving and profound relationship with Yoga, meditation and Breathwork.
In 2015 I went through a major burnout. I ended up in an emotional limbo, somewhere where I no longer recognized myself. I was no longer true to myself and I ignored both my body's physical and mental warning signals. I lost my passion, my creative urge, my sense of humor. I was depressed. There was a turmoil of thoughts spinning SO fast that I could not hold on to any of them, nor could I just let them pass.
For me, movement (Yoga included), Breathwork, meditation, Body therapy and lots of support and love from family became my way back. However, it was not the way back to my previous, max-performing self. Today I feel that I have found balanced self that takes into account and prioritizes my body and my soul. Life is supposed to be felt and today I can allow my feelings to flow much better.
Today I have my own clinic and studio in Malmö - Balance Room where I work with Body therapy and embodiment (thought various disciplines) In addition to this - I am also part of the teaching team at TOTUM - The School of Body Therapy in Copenhagen and Malmö

" Julia teaches a contemporary jazz class that utilizes spinal articulations and release techniques, and to find an organic way of moving and at the same time challenge the dancers technique and to find maximum range of movement. It starts with a set technical warm up with elements of floor work, stretch and strength. The warm up flows thru for 45min and then we work on a choreography phrase for the rest of the class. A big focus is for the dancers to find their own interpretation and flow of the movement- to make it feel natural in your body. "

"The Countertechnique® class is a contemporary dance technique class. It stretches, coordinates and strengthens the body, making the dancer sweat, build stamina and really move.
The class starts with a recurring set of exercises, allowing dancers to investigate the Countertechnique® principles in detail. The second half of the class consists of changing components, working towards luscious movement combinations and jumping at the end.
The Countertechnique® class results in dancers using less energy, losing their fear of taking risks and gaining speed in changing direction. "
Born and raised in Sweden, Anette is now based in Malmö and Stockholm. She started taking Countertechnique classes in 2016 and worked in a creation with Anouk van Dijk during the autumn of 2021.

“I love that double presence; being aware of what’s happening in my own body while being fully present in the room dancing together with the other bodies in the space. After a long dance career, the encounter with Countertechnique has given me a new spark and a strong desire to keep dancing professionally. As a dancer I feel freer in my body and stronger than ever, provided with tools to assist me in all kinds of situations - physical as well as mental.
The Countertechnique system is sensible and well conceived. It sums up a lot of valuable knowledge for the body and mind as well as offering a well thought through and up to date approach to teaching dance. It is a faithful everyday companion, providing each individual with the possibility of making their own choices in their aim to develop and find more freedom and control.
I strive to facilitate an allowing and positive atmosphere in the dance studio, so that dancers can feel comfortable to explore, take risks, fail, evolve and enjoy - or rediscover - the joy of dancing.”

"In the class that I offer we work fast pace with release based material and playfulness. The focus is to keep going with the body, to keep fit and challenge changing qualities and perception of space inside and outside of the body. A class that gives a daily introduction to a mix of created material, phrases and improvisation. Leaving the class I wish for the participator to have had the chance to wake up both body and mind, to be cheerful and empowered for the rest of the day."

"Jag har en uppvärmning som integrerar hela kroppen i de flesta övningar för jag tycker det är viktigt med ett flow för att bli varm och ett helkroppstänk.
Mina klasser anpassas utifrån vad vi gör för koreografi på slutet så att man lotsas in i stilen genom klassen. De ord jag kommer på som kan sammanfatta min jazzklass är teknik, off center, 360 grader, dynamik och passion. Och musikalitet!"

"Under mina klasser ligger mycket av fokus på musikalitet. Men också isolationer i kombination med fysisk jazzträning. Det kommer vara en omfattande uppvärmning med fokus på fysisk styrka. Jag är influerad av många andra stilar som gör att jag arbetar i en jazzfusion stil. Jag önskar att utmana dansare till att jobba utifrån sin egen ”range of movement” och går ut ifrån att dans ska vara kul!"

"My contemporary class is influenced by Cunningham and Limón techniques, also utilize release technique to find dynamics in the movement.
The class starts slowly with a simple series of exercises to warm up all the muscles and joints and aim to find articulations of the back as well as an organic way of moving.
Continue with floor exercises, which will strengthen core and right coordination of the body. Through the class I will guide to build up awareness of space and directions.
Class finishes with longer dance sequence to challenge dancers to find musicality, dynamics and individuality."

"How do we prepare the body? For what? Isn’t dancing already occurring? Rosalind Crisp brings 40 years of dancing research to these questions. She offers processes for attending to the materiality of our bodies - the flesh, weight, breath, edges and contents, and proposes a raft of compositional tools to respond to this materiality. Her method supports dance artists to sustain an independent, embodied inquiry."
For over forty years, Australian choreographer and dancer Rosalind Crisp has engaged in a radical physical critique of dance, through dancing. She has produced numerous solo and group works, informed by her rigorous and experimental engagement with the body. From 2004 to 2012, she was based in Paris as the Associate Artist of the Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson. Her dance works are presented throughout Europe and Australia where she is also sought after for her teaching methodology (DOCH Stockholm, HZT Berlin, Laban London, The Place London, Dancehouse Melbourne ...). In 2015 the French Ministry of Culture awarded Rosalind a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Letters. In 2020 she established the Orbost Studio for Dance Research (Australia), hosting an international artist-in-residence program.
Beyond analogy, Crisp’s movement is astonishing in its sheer otherness, ... the standard syntax of dance is erased. It’s magical... RealTime

Shannon Cooney’s Moveable Cinema/Dynamic Expansion: Dance/movement embodiment practice.
"Moveable Cinema is a movement practice created to expand the felt-sense and consciousness of vision while in movement. Shared though a series of mandalas (or practices) it enables one to find a unique path to research consciously how the expanded sense of vision can be an available process; to tune into one’s body acutely to the present. Beyond self-oriented practice, practices with others challenges and enriches subtle and powerful forms of witnessing. This becomes a vital and reliable tool for performance.
Moveable Cinema exists within the frame of Dynamic Expansion.
Dynamic Expansion is an integrated and somatic approach to orient to the Craniosacral System; tuning into its waves and stillness phenomena grounds the practice. We work with the key element of the system, the Fluid Body. We explore sates of fluid dynamics and how they move the body, and states of stillness, or stillpoints; where fluid rests and at the same time gains potential for movement.
This practice offers many possible applications to one’s personal artistic/creative work or practice including: a vibrant palette/range of movement qualities, joy in movement, fine-tuned visual field perception, enhanced depth of focus, heightened and subtle states of presence, refined self-perception skills, new systems of connecting with self others and, profound and grounded experiences in the sensorial field."

"Sharing of physicality and explanation of ideas.
How to connect ideas hidden in daily life to creation. How to extend the idea and physicality. How to seamlessly change situations and physical ideas?
How do you weave relationships in improvisation? Create inevitability in the movement and in the relationship. By doing so, the relationship is made visible and people find a story in it.
We will expand the possibilities of the body from three perspectives: task, situation, and purpose."
Takuya Fujisawa (Dancer/Choreographer) has been based in Göteborg, Sweden since 2015. In 2020 he started working as a freelancer.
Since then he has hosted the research platform CRAFT and developed his own work based in Gothenburg.
Diversity and mutual understanding are increasingly important themes. While language barriers often prevent us from understanding others, I am interested in exploring and creating work that reaches beyond these boundaries. I am interested in the use of movement as a means of consent and disagreement, the effort to listen with one's own voice without resorting to vocabulary, or the use of language as a physical tool.
He incorporates a cultural anthropological perspective into his work, looking at things from a point of view that is different to the norm, rather than criticizing issues.

"I share a collection of somatic tools on how to listen and meet your own body, space and time. Techniques on how to soften, greet and move with other bodies, enter high yet gentle and effortless physicality within instant composition and flow in the practise of contact improvisation.
Through structured exercises we break down the principals of the form to find momentum through solo, pair and group work. The material includes how to meet the floor, another body and explore the point of contact. Through spirals we rise and fall in and out of physical contact.
* This class is highly technical and aimed towards dancers from different backgrounds who are curious on exploring movement leaving your own axis of balance and weight."

"My jazz class is strongly influenced by Simonson technique. American dancer and teacher Lynn Simonson developed the technique based on her classical ballet training, her love of jazz music, and her knowledge of anatomy. The class starts with a soft and stretchy warm-up, and continues with thorough exercises, pliés, tendues, developpés, arches and contractions, strength and mobility exercises on the floor, ending in a short dance combination.

"Helena Franzén har utvecklat en samtida dansteknik som hon förfinat under sin trettioåriga verksamhet där medvetenheten om kroppens möjlighet till rörelse står i fokus. Golvövningar och inspiration av yoga är metoder i arbetet med att finna tillgänglighet, centrering, flexibilitet och styrka. Under klassen ges tid att uppmärksamma olika rörelsekvaliteter där precision, känslighet och den egna närvaron är betydelsefull.
Uppvärmningen är en förberedelse för ett längre frasmaterial där dynamiska flöden, rumsuppfattning och musikalitet exponeras och tydliggörs. Klassen inspirerar till att lyssna, dela och uppleva rörelse i ett gemensamt arbete."

"Helena Franzén has developed a contemporary dance technique that she has refined during her thirty years of choreographic work, where the awareness of the body's ability to move is in focus. Floor exercises and inspiration from yoga are methods in the work of finding accessibility, centering, flexibility and strength. During the class, time and attention is given to different qualities of movements where precision, sensitivity and presence are important.
The warm-up is a preparation for a longer phrase material where dynamic flows, perception of space and musicality are exposed and clarified. The class inspires to listen, share and experience movement together."

"Swaying / a dance for contemporary times"
Vecka 17, 24/4 - 27/4 Måndag 11.15-12.45 Tisdag-torsdag 9.30-11.00
"In this class we will play with different element that all emerge from the idea of “Swaying.”
I view swaying as a motion that occurs both on a physical as well as on a perceptual level.
Through a combination of somatic work and athletic games, we will explore sometimes alone, other times with a partner, different ways to feel and listen to the swaying motion. We will then play with those elements to ground ourselves and respond to internal as well as external impulses. The aim being to observe how through a seemingly unstable state, we can experience sustainability and resilience. "
This class will be held in English.

Movement Research ILM
Vecka 14, 3-6 april Måndag- torsdag 9.30-11.00
"This class focuses on clearing and clarifying movement pathways in the body so that we can work with ease while cultivating greater function and quality of motion as we dance.
Ilan Lev Method is a playful, somatic approach which gives the body a chance to expand its perception of what it can accomplish, physically and energetically. We unlock the breath, drop the seriousness and cultivate our curiosity, which allows us to become more adaptable, clear and conscious in movement.
We begin with ILM research in which we use resting forces like leaning and falling to send our bodies into motion with the aid of rich imagery. Gradually increasing the complexity, range and speed of movement we find possibilities to ride what we’ve generated further into space. We take these principles into improvisation, transforming our approach to familiar forms and coordinations as we explore the expansive potential of our physical form.
Playing with the body as a vessel for movement to pass through, we experience more clarity, efficiency and possibility with less effort."

"Finding the connection between the body and mind is essential for Min's class. In the class he would like to motivate the participants to stay curious, how to use different intentions to open awareness of the body, and keep discovering the possibilities of the physicality and sensation; finding the relationship between discipline and freedom, developing the personal interpretation of the movement, having an open mind to try and feel. Joy and the passion to move are very important, dance should be fun, not the mechanic routine of practice. "

Contemporary - Dynamic Scanning
23 - 26/8 Tisdag, onsdag & torsdag 9.30-11.00 Fredag 11.15-12.45.
"In my teaching I'm introducing a series of dynamic body scans guiding the participants awareness through a divers set of movement proposals. My practice is aiming to take the participants towards a state of physical and mental availability and readiness.
My approach to movement is strongly informed by the Feldenkrais method, as I'm currently training to become a Feldenkrais practitioner. For those classes I will experiment with and share ways of incorporating the method into my practice. I wish through the classes to foster playfulness, joyfulness, imagination, curiosity, ease and freedom. Therefore I will focus on working with movement material that allows for getting confused, getting it wrong, meeting the place of not knowing and the unstable – as places of learning and finding new ways of being with the body in
Taking point of departure in the Feldenkrais method the class will mostly offer fixed movement material. More than being creative in the choice of movement I'm interested in creativity in the execution of the movement. Using simple movement patterns to explore the process of making movements pleasurable, light and curious.
Short phrases will serve as reference movements – to give a common base on reflection through movement. In between the phrases I will insert a short Feldenkrais lesson. After the Feldenkrais practice we will return back to the short phrase to explore the material again using the information gained from the practice"
Antoinette is a German choreographer based in Copenhagen. Over the past 10 years she created numerous dance works for stage and film. Her choreographic works are driven by her deep fascination with how the body is engaged in social interaction.
This fascination leads her to explore social phenomena such as laughter, crying and the process of how humans create their self image in social interaction with others. Taking point of departure in the Feldenkrais method she has developed a choreographic practice that uses somatics as an invitation for the spectator to slow
down, to observe closely, and to establish a unified awareness through bodily sensations between performer and audience.
During the past 15 years she continuously expanded her teaching practice – giving class- es in education, to companies and to freelancers.

Impro för nya träningsformer 11.15-12.45
"This class will introduce frameworks that shift, bends, and over/under-mine the bodily patterns of the ballet bar.
This is an expansion of it, but also a proposal for critical body-mind’s put in actualization.
instead of talking about a tendu or a plié, the words ”tåfjutt” and ”knä-böj” will comically change the understanding/investigation/expansion for concepts of moving in ballet. The aim for the straight line is eradicated for a more curved, ”improvisational”, other-than-straight-way approach, to moving the surfaces (even limbs) of the body towards it’s destiny, or aka ”tåfjutt”.
Impro för nya träningsformer:
"Att erbjuda koreografiska strukturer som underlättar och stärker dansarens egna morgonträning. Där uppdelningen ”improvisera för att bli varm” eller ”bli varm för att sedan kunna improvisera” sätts under lupp.
Vi kommer träna På improvisation, träna Genom improvisation och träna improviserat. En klass som bejakar nya träningsformer."

Morgonklass GAGA 9.30-10.45
Repertoire Ohad Naharin 11.00 - 12.30
Gaga is the movement language developed by Ohad Naharin throughout many years, parallel to his work as a choreographer and artistic director (1990-2018) of Batsheva Dance Company.
Gaga classes are predicated on a deep listening to the body and to physical sensations. The instructions are deployed to increase awareness of and further amplify sensation, information is layered, building into a multisensory, physically challenging experience. While many instructions are imbued with rich imagery, the research of Gaga is fundamentally physical, insisting on a specific process of embodiment. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening the body and adding flexibility, stamina, agility, and skills including coordination and efficiency while stimulating the senses and imagination.
Gaga/dancers deepens dancers’ awareness of physical sensations, expands their palette of available movement options, enhances their ability to modulate their energy and engage their explosive power, and enriches their movement quality with a wide range of textures. The classes employ the specific vocabulary and skills that are part and parcel of a dancer’s knowledge. The layering of familiar skills with Gaga tasks presents dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class, teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places and ways of moving as well, unlocking the endlessness of possibilities. Dancers are guided to connect their effort to pleasure and to discover the virtue of silliness.
Ohad Naharin Repertoire
This class gives dancers an opportunity to learn excerpts of Ohad Naharin’s choreographic works and to apply their training in Gaga to the repertory.

"Vi startar med en klassisk jazzuppvärmning som inkludera grundteknik, styrka och stretch. Jag utgår från att hitta lugn och fokus i kropp och sinne för att effektivare kunna värma och hitta flöden. Vi jobbar med form och linjering för att hitta balans, smidighet och stabilitet.
Under diagonaler är det fokus på jazzteknikens grundsteg, snurrar och hopp. Vi varierar dessa genom rytmik, dynamik och uttryck.
När vi kommer till koreografin ska vi vara så pass uppvärmda och förberedda i kropp och sinne att vi har ett stort spektra att använda oss av vad kommer till rörelse, tempo och rumslighet. Kroppen ska vara öppen för att arbeta med såväl explosiva rörelser som att kunna vara en närvarande kropp i stillhet. Koreografierna är dynamiska i tempo och rörelsekvalité. Målet är att kunna vara mjuk och kraftfull samtidigt. Vara specifik och skarp likväl som att vara flytande och avslappnade i sina rörelser."
Elin Hedin arbetar som dansare, koreograf och pedagog. Hon är utbildad vid Balettakademien i Stockholm och har vidareutbildat sig i New York, Tel Aviv, Sydney och på Stockholms Konstnärliga Högskola. Som dansare har hon arbetat med många av Sveriges fria koreografer för en ung publik.

"Through a very physical morning practice DeLeónCompany offers a space for each body to warm up through a guided improvisation method and thereby listen to their bodies. Through shifting of weight, traveling across space and moving into the floor,
we facilitate how to recognize the body’s weight and using it as a motor to generate momentum. The body’s physical limitations are potentially erased.
Imagination plays a huge part in the work, and by introducing colourful universes the mind is offered the ability to accept such states as failure, play and being lost.
The practice aims to develop a sense of internal awareness which can bring each participant further in their own physical practices and daily life."
Jens Schyth Brøndum educated from the Ballet Education, Longmont Dance Theater in Colorado with addition to receiving a BA in Dance & Choreography from the Danish National School of Performing Arts. Jens founded DeLeónCompany in 2013 and has choreographed and danced for the company since. As a dancer Jens has been a member of Sita Ostheimer Company since 2016, performing and touring pieces such as “Molimo” and “US” throughout Europe and Asia.

- Feldenkrais and improvisation
Vecka 2 , 9-12/1

"Feldenkrais is a somatic movement technique where we work from a skeletal point of view in order to open up for new articulations, chains of thoughts and movement possibilities, to break habitual patterns and balance our nervous system.
It's injury preventing and can be used as a rehabilitation technique or just as a practice to sharpen one’s tools.
(It’s about functionality, how to work in an effortless way as possible, about self organisation and about raising awareness of one's own movements and capacities to reach our full potential. )
In Feldenkrais we give space and exercises for the unmeasurable such as; intuition, sensing, listening from a physical point of view.
It´s both a very precise, sensible and poetic work.
Each day will have its own focus starting with a Feldenkrais class which leads into an improvisation flow through anatomical rooms and more dynamic embodied explorations in the room.
How can our structure support us through situations of the unknown? How can we work with imagination and imaginative spaces in order to spark creativity and flow of movement and thought? (How can we use that inwards listening we use in Feldenkrais also in embodied flow and challenge our perception of movement in space?) - are questions we´ll work with during the improvisation."
Julia Kraus is a dancer and choreographer based in Stockholm and has been doing both her own productions, international cooperations as well as creating for stages like Riksteatern, Zebra Dans, Scenkonst Sörmland, Comedia Theater Köln, Strindbergs Intima teater, Orionteatern, Machol Shalem, Tmuna.
With one foot in Israel and one foot in Sweden she’s been working as a dancer with choreographers like, Roy Assaf, Rotem Tashach, Maya Brinner, Dana Yahalomi, Mari Carrasco among others. In 2012 she did the Batsheva excellence project led by Hillel Cogan.
With an education in Dance and directing, Julia is a choreographer interested in interdisciplinary work and in the melt point between different expressions and media combinations with the thinking body as start point.
Since 2021 Julia is also a Feldenkrais practitioner which she’s teaching both from a healing and a technical point of view as well as its a part of her artistic practice.

Stream-Flow Method Classes
"Heidi’s inspiration for Stream Flow came from very different angles. It is the starting point for all of her teaching and choreographic work, and is integrated into both Contemporary and Ballet classes for professional dance companies and dance institutions internationally. These include :
Gothenburg DansKompani, Carte Blanche, Skånes Danstheater, Dansalliansen, The Netherlands Dans Theater summer intensive, Johannes Wieland Dance Company and many more.
Please check: www.heidivierthaler.com for a full list.
A unique and constantly evolving tool for dancers and non dancers alike, using visual imagery and tactile exercises to help release the body and heighten awareness on many levels. From simple ball imagery exploring inner and outer body, to delicate touch guidance, causing an array of dynamics, from extremely fragile to surprisingly powerful. Ideal for braking habitual movement
patterns. Her Stream-Flow method has been recognized as an effective somatic movement method that focuses on developing the individual. It has been featured in a recent publication for dance practices amongst dance institutions throughout Europe.
Practicing Dance, A Somatic orientation:
http://www.logos-verlag.de/cgi-bin/engbuchmid?isbn=4213&lng=deu&id= How the pursuit of
Accessing the individual led me to Stream-Flow: Heidi Vierthaler
Heidi’s interest lies in discovering a deeper knowledge of the body’s possibilities for the benefit of others and to continue developing her own distinctive movement language. Stream-Flow is an effective and creative approach to bridging different dance forms. The focus of the classes will be on integrating heightened inner and outer awareness as the foundation of endless initiations and physical organisations. We will work on separating the body into small sections from joint to joint and space to space. We’ll also work on movement phrases that will allow for surprising initiations,
and a richer result with less effort and a rich pallet of dynamics."

"My style has been described as "Athletic" because of the energy and physicality exuded in the performance and required of myself and my dancers within my movement which pulls foundations rooted from African, Jazz, Modern, Hip Hop, Commercial/Pop, House, Latin and basic human emotion. There's a story to be told with a message - my message is to LIVE! Live in the moment, live in the music, live out in life. Allow yourself to feel. Allow yourself to dare. Allow yourself to take risks and stumble or fall, getting right back up and keep on moving.
Just have FUN and DANCE! "
PHILOSOPHY OF DANCE
Dance without joy and expression just isn't dance.
It's boring, unappreciative and non-committal - it's not fun to do nor fun watch. We dance because we like to - we like how music makes us feel, we like how it makes us want to move, we like how it all speaks to us and we like how the audience relates to us from what are bodies are doing and what they are saying.
Dance is a relationship between the music, the choreographer, the dancer and the audience. Within this relationship are three key/core components that allow us to effectively communicate the story to be told in each moment:
--MUSICALITY; listening to and understanding rhythmical components within music. --FIGURE; lines, shapes and body language within movement.
--EXPRESSION; energy, character and dynamics within performance.
Whether it is class or a production, we explore this communication and relationship by learning how the body works through the individual parts utilizing movement patterns through elongation, isolation, balance, release, power, energy and control; piecing the parts together into sequences, working across the floor done with traveling combinations meant to challenge and stimulate the mind and body in preparation to speak/communicate; then finally communicating/telling a story via the movement - breaking thru the traditional form and technique, dirtying it up and extending it with personal flavor.
How often do you find an instructor/ choreographer that actually teaches
and focuses on listening to the music and performing with energy instead of relying on counts and just dosing
out choreography? It's a rare find, but that's what you get (and more) in class with MIKE GAMBLE every time!
Originally from Hartford, CT, Mike hails from Philadelphia, PA where he garnered most of his training in West African, Hip Hop, Modern, Jazz, House, Breaking and Capoeira. While in Philadelphia he guest performed with Gwendolyn Bye and Dance Del Bello dance companies, choreographed for the Drexel University Dance Ensemble and Dance Team, and was an original founding member of FLOMotion, an international Hip Hop dance company, while also maintaining a career in Marketing and Special Events. In the summer of 2000, Mike made dance history becoming the first (and only) male to complete the final cuts of the Philadelphia 76ers Dance Team.
Mike moved to Los Angeles in 2003 and quickly became active in the commercial industry performing (dancing, acting and modeling) in music videos and commercials including work with artists Leela James, Chris Cornell and India Arie and companies including Target, Nike, Apple/iPod and Reebok. He has also produced, choreographed and directed burlesque companies whom have performed in and around Los Angeles, Reno, Laughlin and Las Vegas and with artists including Panic! At the Disco and R. Kelly, as well as companies including SPIKE TV and Trashy Lingerie.
While he continues to enjoy being in front of the camera, Mike is focusing his talents behind the scenes in production and education through the arts, having choreographed an Emmy-nominated children’s television program, producing and choreographing numerous events & shows, while also co-founding and running an international management agency with his long-time close friend/former agent whom herself was one of the top agents at the top two dance agencies in New York & Los Angeles.
His passion for spreading knowledge and the joy of dance has taken him on an international journey as he relocated in September 2009 to Gothenburg, Sweden where he is currently teaching master classes, workshops and daily classes as well as throughout Scandinavia, Europe and around the world, continuing to share his gift of inspiration and dance.

"My class structure will follow the ballet exercise patterns: barre, center, diagonal, jumps and combinations.
Thanks to my knowledge of Gyrokinesis/Gyrotonic method and contemporary dance, the class brings different positive aspects than a normal classical ballet exercise.
The class in fact will be enriched with different aspects like spirals, curves and arches, awareness of center and balance, organic movement coordinated with breathing patterns and so on.
The aim of my class is simply to give to the participant an improving holistic approach with a better sensation of the capabilities of one’s own body and beyond."
Pietro La Loggia worked as a professional modern dancer in different dance company:

ATypical Ballet onsdag & fredag 9.30-11.00
Technosomatics Tisdag & Torsdag 9.30-11.00
"In this class we will work with ballet and some of its absorptions into modern and post-modern dance, through the filter of somatic practices. Anatomical information and their integration in our bodies as a body-felt-sense will open doors for solving technical questions, bringing ease and specificity in our movement and exploring new possible connections and patterns in our bodies. Basic landmarks in ballet and affiliated techniques will be revisited by inviting a new, different understanding of their workings. The class will fall in and out of the expected structure of a ballet class and will include the exploration of a phrase that activates various of the elements that are approached during the class."
Technosomatics is a practice developed by Frédéric Gies, which consists of a collective and individual exploration of the endocrine glands and chakras through club dancing to techno music as wells as the opposite: an exploration of club dancing while embodying the endocrine glands and the chackras. The endocrine glands constitute the main chemical system of the body and the chackras are energy centers. The practice connects to both the field of somatics (movement education practices) and to club dance, approached as dance practice as sophisticated as any other dance form. It emphasizes the experienced body rather than the body as an object of study, making use of alternative maps of the body, which both differ and connect to western scientific anatomy. It considers club dance as a medium for developing further one’s bodily awareness and understanding in subtle ways. Through its somatic approach, it also expands the span of our perceptions and gives valuable tools for other forms of dance and techniques. The sessions can as well comprise explorations and exercises, which connects to other dance forms, including ballet. It is suitable for both professional dancers and the general audience.
Frédéric Gies is an artist in the field of experimental dance based in Sweden. His work is anchored in rigorous movement research processes, which are informed by his experience in the field of somatic practices as well as in specific forms of contemporary dance, his former training in ballet and his participation in techno clubs and raves. Recycling and perverting dance history, his pieces collapse in many ways the distinction between erudite and popular dance forms. His work also explores the ways dance can address politics outside of language, semiotics and theatricality. Besides his work, he has also worked as a dancer for choreographers such as Daniel Larrieu, Cristina Caprioli, Isabelle Schad, Olivia Grandville (…). He has also co-signed pieces with other choreographers (DD Dorvillier, Jefta Van Dinther, Alice Chauchat…). Since 2014, he collaborates for all his pieces with the dj Fiedel. Between 2012 and 2018, he has been the head of programme of the MA in choreography at DOCH-SKH. He has been invited as a guest teacher in places such as HZT, SNDO, TEAK, Ponderosa (…).
Improvising through Deep listening, Touch & Imagery
Torsdagar 6, 13, 20 oktober Obs se tid! kl.11.15-13.15
"In this class we will be listening deeply to our bodies’ inner landscape and anatomical structure to practice releasing unnecessary tension, finding efficient strength and resiliency, and trusting our bodies' innate physical intelligence within improvising. Through methods from BodyMind Centering, Alexander Technique, Skinner Releasing Technique and the work of Eva Karczag this class will lead you through hands-on work in duets, guided imagery and experiential anatomy, and improvisation. We will take time to tune our attention, consciousness, senses, physical and energetic body to allow our dancing to embrace the unknown and unpredictable, to create new movement pathways and be in a state of presence and play. This also involves working with breath, deep rest, gravity and moving both with subtle details and momentum. In this class you will be able to take the needs of your body into consideration."
The four classes will be connected, build upon each other and move through specific inner physical structures such as the ribcage, the pelvis, the spine and the skull. However, you are also very welcome to drop-in and only participate in one class!
Tuva Hildebrand is a choreographer, performer and pedagogue from Skåne with extensive experience somatic dance modules such as Skinner Releasing Technique, Alexander Technique, BodyMind Centering and the work of Eva Karczag (pioneer within Release technique and somatic dance practice). During 2018-now she has been archiving the pedagogical methods of Eva Karczag through an MFA research, by also examining the work from a socio-political perspective. In 2011-2018 Hildebrand lived in New York and worked with choreographers such as Stacy Grossfield and Heather Kravas, but mostly dedicated her time to improvisational and release based practices through working closely with pioneers in the NY downtown scene such as K.J. Holmes, Stephanie Skura, Eva Karczag and many others through her time at Movement Research 2013-2016. http://tuvahildebrand.com

Contemporary Tisdag och torsdag 11.15-12.45
"In this contemporary ballet class I like to focus on musicality, dynamic and functional way of using the ballet principles. I believe that ballet class could be approached as a practice of presence, a mindful understanding of your body, movement and space. It’s about finding your own organic and unique way of moving within the frame of ballet tradition, interpreting familiar exercises, developing spatial awareness and opening the door to creativity within."
"I like to give a dynamic class that is suitable for dancers with different backgrounds.
I find important taking time for strengthening, and mobilizing exercises but rather blended into the flow of the class.
I emphasize musicality and dynamics as well as widening the qualities vocabulary.
Choreographic phrase in the end of the class should help the dancers to test new technical and creative ideas."
I was formed as a dancer and later on as a teacher at Vaganova Ballet Academy, in St-Petersburg.
I have also studied at Rudra Bejart Ballet and had the honor to work with Maurice Bejart.
Later on I've met and performed in works by Jiri Kylian, Ohad Naharin, Alexander Ekman, Örjan Andersson, Paul Lightfoot and Saul Leon, Tim Rushton, Itzik Galili, Cathy Marston and other wonderful choreographers while working at Netherlands Dance Theatre 2, Danish Dance Theatre and freelancing. As a teacher I am influenced by great masters like Irina Chistiakova, Laura Bernasconi, Kevin Cregan, Yannick Sempey, Amy Raymond, Allyson Way and many others. I also
like to apply methods of William Forsythe and principles from Gaga. Keeping the general structure of a ballet class I focus on body placement: neutral position of the pelvis, active shoulder blades,
coordination of the arms, freedom in the hip joints ect .
I also like to pay attention to musicality and dynamics to help achieve better results in the center and in jumps, also to fully enjoy the flow of the class.

"The class has a focus on functionality of movement that strives to improve the dancers efficient use and transferring of energy, momentum, in dancing.
It is based on my own artistic and movement research. The teaching addresses how to move around and through ourselves, how to travel through the space, both in the vertical and horizontal plane, how to work with jumps, runs, turns and slides. One term to describe the class is floor-work, but I also work with principles that can be applied in relation to a partner.
The class it self is energetic and deals with tools from both contemporary dancing, flying low, martial arts and other related movement practices."
