Jonas Svensson

Modern Balett 

Vecka 26. 24, 26, 28 juni. Måndag, Onsdag & Fredag 9.30-11.00


"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."

 BIO: 

Jonas Svensson är ursprungligen från Stockholm men har bott i Malmö i ca 16 år.

Jag är utbildad danspedagog och dansare vid Danshögskolan i Stockholm. Större delen av min karriär har jag jobbat som dansare i Skånes Dansteater. Jag var även med och startade dansgruppen Rytm bà som jobbar med stepp och rytm i kombination med modern dans.

Bobbi Lo Produktion

Guidad improvisation

Vecka 32 , 5 - 9 Augusti  9.15-10.15


"Bobbi Lo Produktion (BLP) ger en dynamisk klass där målet är att bli varm och redo för dagen och framtiden, båda fysisk och mentalt. Klassen leds av en av de konstnärliga ledare, Lava Markusson eller Michel Tang. Genom att använda kroppens intelligens och intuition leds du genom en guidad improvisation som fokuserar på artikulation och mjukgörande av lederna samt kickstartar de stora muskelgrupperna. Vi varvar mellan fysiska övningar och har stort intresse av att använda, utmana och utveckla kroppen på ett naturligt sätt, i form av övningar inspirerad av yoga och naturlig träning. Ibland leker vi, och vi tycker det är viktigt att ha roligt både i arbetet och i livet. Fantasi är en stor del av arbetet, genom att introducera bilder och texturer till kroppens fysikalitet vill BLP att en inre medvetenhet skapas som ger deltagarna möjlighet att utveckla egna praktiker."


Bio:

Bobbi Lo Produktion leds av konstnärliga ledarna Lava Markusson och Michael Tang och de skapar innovativ scenkonst för en ung publik. Bobbi Lo Produktions verk kännetecknas av ett starkt fysiskt uttryck som i sin tematik utgår från ett intresse för mänskligt beteende och hur konst för ung publik kan ifrågasätta och skapa dialog kring detsamma. Genom att skapa provokativ scenkonst förankrad i sin samtid arbetar Bobbi Lo Produktion för att väcka eftertanke och reflektioner kring vår egen tillvaro, och samhället i stort.

About Gaga

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.

Mike Gamble

Jazz 

Vecka 34: Måndag & onsdag,11.00-12.30 Tisdag & torsdag 10.45-12.15.


"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.  

BIO:

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 purpose in life is to inspire other people and I'm doing it one performance,  one dance and one student at a time." --Mike Gamble

Tisdag: 10.45-12.45

Onsdag: 12.30-14.00

"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."

Philippe Blanchard

Contemporary

Vecka 36. 3, 5/9 Tisdag & torsdag 9.15-10.30

Vecka 39. 24/9 Tisdag 9.15-10.30

"The methodology of Philippe's creative practice in the morning class is embedded in the liaison we hold with our own body, seeking to farm and grasp internal information, reacting to the interconnected web we are participating in. How do we regularly revitalize our sense of belonging to our urban or natural surroundings? The practice aims to support the dance practitioners in their daily journey, to launch them into their quotidian. It offers a toolbox premised on a continuous (non-stop) session where participants build their strengths and energies. The class grazes somatic methods but invites the participants to explore their singular movement through improvisational dynamics."

BIO:

Born in France and based in Sweden, Philippe is a former dancer for companies such as NDT, Batsheva Dance Company and Cullbergballetten. He has established himself as an international choreographer and dance practitioner and recently graduated as an M.A. student in Arts & Ecology at the Dartington Arts School/Plymouth University.

"KROPPSKLUBBEN vänder och vrider genom rörelse på kroppen för att uppleva den ur olika perspektiv. Under denna timmeslånga klass undersöker vi vad dansträning är och kan vara och utgår ifrån vad som intresserar oss just nu. Vi anpassar oss efter hur kroppen mår och vad den bär med sig just idag och utmanar oss på ett lustfyllt sätt. Vi inspireras av somatiska praktiker, shaking-sessions, våra inre jazzbarn, floorwork-praktiker, styrkeövningar, yoga, beröring och lekar."

Fredagar: 6/9, 27/9, 11/10  kl.11.00-12.30


"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."

Tuva Hildebrand

Somatic movement 


Denna morgonklass är avsedd för både skådespelare och dansare.

This morning class is intended for actors and dancers together.

A collaboration between Dansalliansen, Teateralliansen and Danscentrum Syd.

Vecka 38-50  Måndagar 9.00-10.00. Uppehåll: V.44

 16/9, 23/9, 30/9, 7/10, 14/10, 21/10, 4/11, 11/11, 18/11, 25/11, 2/12,  9/12.    

   

"I den här klassen kommer vi att använda vår fantasi, beröring och improvisation för att få tillgång till frihet och spontanitet i hur vi dansar, rör oss och relaterar till våra kroppar. Jag kommer att guida er genom djup vila, praktiskt arbete med partner, upplevelsebaserad anatomi, poetiska bilder och improvisationsövningar som skapar ett utrymme för er fysiska kropp att stämma in på en djupare känsla av självet, släppa onödig spänning, bryta vanor och öka er förmåga att lyssna på er själva och er omgivning. Under denna timme övar vi på att släppa behovet av att prestera på ett specifikt sätt och lita på kroppens inneboende intelligens. I vissa klasser kommer vi att röra oss långsammare och djupare, och i andra med mer lekfullhet och intensitet.

Att öppna upp vår förmåga att röra oss och tänka med öppenhet, lätthet och lekfullhet, samt med intensitet på ett hållbart sätt, kan tillämpas på hur ni använder er röst i en pjäs, vid genomförandet av en koreografi, när ni improviserar eller skapar självständiga konstnärliga verk; det kan låta er närvaro blomstra och kreativiteten flöda.

Materialet i klassen är influerat av somatiska tekniker såsom Skinner Releasing Technique, Alexander Technique, BodyMind Centering, Ideokinesis, Eva Karczags arbete och improvisationsmetoder från post-Judson danskonstnärer i New York, såsom K.J. Holmes, Stephanie Skura och Deborah Hay."

**************************************

“In this class we will use our imagination, touch and improvisation to access freedom and spontaneity in how we dance, move and relate to our body. I will guide you through deep rest, hands-on partner graphics, experiential anatomy, poetic imagery and improvisational scores which creates a space for your physical self to tune into a deeper felt sense of self, to let go of unnecessary tension, to break habits and heighten your ability to listen to yourself and your environment. In this hour we practice letting go of having to perform in a specific way and trust the innate intelligence of your body. In some classes we will move slower and deeper, and in some we will move with more play and rigor.

To open up our ability to move and think with openness, ease and play, as well as rigor in a sustainable way can be applied to how you use your voice in a play, in the execution of a choreography, when improvising or when creating independent artistic work; it may allow your presence to flourish and creativity to flow.

The material in the class is influenced by somatic techniques such as Skinner Releasing Technique, Alexander Technique, BodyMind Centering, Ideokinesis, the work of Eva Karczag and improvisational methods from post-Judson dance artists in New York, such as K.J. Holmes, Stephanie Skura and Deborah Hay.”

Vecka 41. Måndag, onsdag & fredag 9.15-10.45

Vecka 49. Måndag, onsdag & fredag 9.15-10.45


"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. "


BIO:

 

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. Anette took part in the One Body One Career and the Teacher Training in 2022, where she acquired her certification as a teacher.

 

Anette trained as a dancer at The Royal Ballet School in Stockholm and received acting and pedagogical training at The Stockholm University of the Arts. She started her career as a freelancer before becoming a company member of Skånes Dansteater between 2006-2022, where she has worked with numerous choreographers; Alexander Ekman, Marina Mascarell, Alan Lucien Øyen, Örjan Andersson, Angelin Preljocaj, Jo Strømgren, Ben Wright and Susanna Leinonen to name a few.

Since 2018 Anette has been the Artistic Director of SpaceTimeLab and today she divides her time between creating works for the stage, teaching and working as a dancer and actor.

 

“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.”

 




Horacio Macuacua

Flying low -technical class

Vecka 43. 21 - 25/10 Måndag - fredag 9.15-10.30

Horacio Macuacua håller även hel workshops vecka! Info och anmälan här! 


"This work focuses mainly on the dancer’s relationship with the floor. The class consists in partnering work and movement phrases, which explore the primary laws of physics: cohesion and expansion.


Simple movement patterns that involve breathing, speed and the release of energy throughout the body activate the relationship between the center and the joints, moving in and out of the ground more efficiently

maintaining a centered state. 


The focus on the skeletal structure helps to improve the dancers’ physical

perception and alertness. The technique was developped by David Zambrano, with whom Horacio has been working for more than 19 years. 

They continue to develop it and to exchange on all levels of dance work."


BIO:


The Mozambican dancer and choreographer is the artistic director of the dance company which bears his name. Horacio Macuacua develops projects that aim to go beyond established forms. 


Flexibility of mind and availability to catch the moment translate movement instantly into compositions that are complex and elaborated, displaying depth and playfulness, darkness and light. Each composition is a journey to reinvent and transform within the parameters of meaning.


He has carried out his projects: COMUM, Canais, Orobroy, Stop! (1st Prize and Puma Creative Prize at Danse l’Afrique Danse Festival 2010), Smile If You Can!, Fighting room, Convoy, Paradise is not in the sky! and Theka.

Vecka 49. 2/12 -4/12 Måndag & onsdag 11.00-12.30 Tisdag 10.45-12.15


"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!"

Vecka 40. 1, 3/11 Tisdag & torsdag 9.15-10.30

Vecka.44 29, 31/10  Tisdag & torsdag  9.15-10.30



"The class offers a combination of technical set material and improvisational tasks. We explore gravity, levels, and dynamics through spirals, rising, falling, catching, rolling, coordinating physical negotiation, and weight sharing. 


The class begins by preparing the body, using release techniques to open joints and fascia, greet the floor, move with the breath, and align the body to further research capacities beyond our own bodies. 


The material encourage deep listening to connect for the ability to body surf through the dynamics of contact improvisation. 

The class aims to cultivate trust, enhance dancers' CI technique and spatial awareness, providing information, efficiency, and joy to their bodies".

Vecka 50. 

"Klassens fokus ligger jämnt fördelat över teknik, flow och koreografi.

Jag vill ge dansarna tillfälle att komma djupt ner i kroppen och landa i tekniken. Detta genom en lång och grundlig uppvärmning följt av koreografiskt arbete.

Uppvärmningen fokuserar på placering och alignment, musikalitet och teknik, styrka och stretch, allt sammanhållet av ett dansant flow.

 Koreografiskt vill jag gärna omfamna mångfalden i jazz. En koreografi kan vara inspirerad av klassisk jazz, andra av musical, contemporary, urban eller lyrical – men alltid med jazzens teknik som bas. Koreografierna ger dansarna möjlighet för att komma i kontakt med sin känsla för jazz, sin musikalitet och sitt konstnärliga uttryck."


BIO:

Jenny Major har varit professionellt utövande danskonstnär sedan 1996, med pauser endast för vidareutbildning.

Contemporary

Vecka 45, 5-8/11 Tisdag - torsdag 10.00-11.15 Fredag 11.00-12.15 

OBS! SE även under Workshops!


Morning class 


What is there, already?

Rosalind will share her processes for remembering the materiality of the body, with helpful ways to be with the flesh, weight, breath, edges, contents... 


How to stay interested? 

From the beginning, a raft of compositional tools will be drawn on - simple, playful ways to respond to this materiality such as: following one piece of flesh at a time, prolonging/inhibiting, accelerating/decelerating, thickening/weakening, etc.. and combinations of contrasting/complimentary tools.

BIO:

Rosalind Crisp is an Australian dancer-choreographer and Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. 

She founded Omeo Dance studio, Sydney in 1996, was Associate Artist at Atelier de Paris - Carolyn Carlson 2004-2013, and co-founded Orbost Studio for Dance Research in 2021. Her solo and group works have been presented in 100's of festivals throughout Europe, Australia and Asia, including, Zodiak Helsinki, Zurich theatre Spektakel, Taichung Cultural Centre, Sydney Opera House.. and she has taught thousands of dancers (DOCH, Dans Centrums Sweden, HZT Berlin, Trinity Laban, The Place London, VCA Uni Melbourne, Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company...)

https://www.omeodance.com



Rosalind Crisp has formed, reformed, accumulated and questioned her dancing knowledge over 40-years of studio research and live performance work. She has developed a method to undo those habits left by training and those that continually re-emerge from repetitive practices. The foundational terrain of her work is her aesthetic and technical preference for a 'released' body and her plethora of standard, bent and invented compositional tools.

Vecka 45. 5, 7/11 Tisdag & torsdag 9.00-10.30 i mellanstudion

Anna Borras och Alma Steiner håller i träningen tillsammans 5, 7, 12/11.

Vecka 46. 12, 14/11 Tisdag & torsdag 9.15-10.45 i stora studion


Dessa träningar är baserade på olika skapelseövningar som vi använder för att bygga dansstycket "The Void".


"Det handlar om att träna kroppen för att vara medveten om allt som omger den och så att ingentng förbises. En kropp som kanaliserar i 360 grader, som inte lämnar någonting att uttrycka och som talar om allt genom den samtida dansens språk. Tränar med hög fysisk intensitet, men samtdigt med enorm lyhördhet och forskning kring rörelsekvalitet. 

Vi kommer att upptäcka hur kroppen förhåller sig till arkitekturen i rummet som omger oss med dockor och hur lukt kan förvandla rörelsetätheten och till och med ge oss minnen och känslor. Vi kommer också att arbeta med hur rösten styr det vi sänder med kroppen och skillnaden mellan den och ordet, som redan har en mening och därför en symbolik. 

Vi kommer att arbeta i lyssnarpar, där två personer blir en, i samma kanal och kommunicera genom vad som händer runt dem."

Heidi Vierthaler

Stream-Flow 

Vecka 50. 10, 11, 12/12 Tisdag - torsdag 11.30-14.30


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."

Vecka 23 4 juni Tisdag 9.30-11.00 

" I will share a released based class that draws inspiration from the tools I have been exposed too from my performance career, and my current Somatic Movement studies with the school of Body Mind Centering. Through movement, touch and sensing, we will become familiar with the different structures of the body, cultivating a deep and subtle somatic awareness. We will move collectively, giving space to encounter relationship to self, others and attending to the space that supports us. We will dive into short materials and explore improvisations to integrate the bodies connective tissues, working with elasticity, condensing and expansion. "

Vecka 20 Torsdag 16 maj kl. 14.00-17.00


"Oppositions, gravity, connections, fluidity and density, impulses and instincts, muscle release work, infinite spirals (with a particular focus on the movement of the spine) will flow through the body during a class based on the techniques of Release, Floorwork, Partnering, Improvisation. 

The class combines articulation and disarticulation, both through the study of technical sequences or through moments of guided improvisation combined with partnering work. 

Partnering and contact improvisation work allows you to gain confidence with others, to respect their spaces, welcome, use dynamics that arise spontaneously in order to then be able to observe their evolution."

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia är en internationell temadag vars syfte är att öka medvetande om HBTQ-rättigheter. Den firas årligen den 17 maj. Datumet valdes eftersom WHO slutade klassa homosexualitet som en psykisk sjukdom 17 maj 1990. Wikipedia


"Den yoga jag delar är skapad av ett långt liv inom scenkonst; som koreograf och professionell dansare i över 30 år, med kunskap om mental träning, hur vi kan förbereda kroppen och det helande, läkande. Mina klasser innehåller meditation, mudras, andningsövningar och asanas.


Jag har rötter ifrån Indien. Min första yogaklass tog jag i London 1996 men redan som liten fick jag uppleva hur min farmor utövade pranayama och sedan dess har yoga varit en del av mitt liv, via iyengar yoga, ashtanga yoga, kampsporten kalarippayatu, jin yoga, gravid yoga, bikram yoga, hot yoga och ayurveda."

"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."


BIO:


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.

Embodied movement 

This morning class is intended for actors and dancers together.

A collaboration between Dansalliansen, Teateralliansen and Danscentrum Syd.

Obs! Måndagen den 22/1 är inställd pga sjukdom. Start: 29/1.

Vecka 5 - 16 Måndagar 9.00-10.00. Uppehåll: v.7 +14


"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. ”

Kirstine Ilum

BIO:

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. "

Contemporary - Dynamic Scanning 


Vecka 17 23, 24, 25/4 Tisdag, onsdag & torsdag 9.30-11.00


Workshop i samarbete med Dansalliansen. 23, 24, 25/4 Tisdag, onsdag & torsdag 11.15-16.15 

OBS! Se under fliken WORKSHOP för mera information.


"The classes are using the Feldenkrais method for approaching dance with ease, simplicity, pleasure, eliminating access effort and parasitic movement.

The classes are composed by three sections:


1. Extendedshakingpractice

A guided shaking practice simultaneously serves a dynamic body scanning and a gentle warm up. Over the course of 20 minutes a constantly transforming shaking raises the body temperature and enhances the blood flow, resulting in an increased flow of synovial fluid which allows the joints to move freely. Repetitiveness paired with dynamic scanning invites to let go of unrelated thought activity and to transition into a state of openness, calmness and readiness


2. StrengthandLengththroughcoordination

A sequence of simple and functional movement patterns (borrowed from for example yoga practice and Feldenkrais) alternates between and combines lengthening and strengthening. Combined with playful explorations of unusual and functional ways of coordinating.


3. PhraseWorkonthefloor

 Short sequences explore functional ways of entering the floor, moving across the floor and moving out of the floor. This section works with fixed movement material, using the Feldenkrais method to become aware of details, habits and use of energy. Looking for freedom and creativity within a defined framework."


BIO:


Antoinette Helbing is choreographer, dancer and member of the artist-run platform Dance CooperativE. She divides her time between creating works, performing, teaching and her practice within the Feldenkrais method.

Her choreographic work is driven by her wish to create art that evokes the viewer's sense of belonging, of togetherness and empathy. Reminding the viewer that we, beyond our instagram handles, are actual living and breathing beings, Antoinette creates experiences within and across bodies. Working towards connection, she addresses the empathic through the confrontation with the sensual force of the moment. Allowing the audience to become

aware by their own sensual experience of themselves as spectators.

Since 2017 she is researching laughter as choreographic material and somatic practice facilitating human connection. This practice is a point of departure for a series of works that circulate around laughter as for instance the solo The Laughing Game, the walk Landscapes of Laughter, the movies AFTERLAUGHTER and the group piece The Laughing Crowd which exists in a site-specific version as well as in a stage version.

"In these classes we will dive into House dance as well as it acts as an introduction to my movement language called Leviathan Flow. These classes are Open to All, but previous dance experience is required. 

House dance, which can be characterized by the emphasis on footwork, is a style that came out of the House music that was blossoming in Chicago in the 1980’s. The dancers that shaped House dance to the style we know today are the many dancers in the dance crew Dance Fusion from New York.

Leviathan Flow is, in short, a collection of interests in dance/movement and improvisation that has shaped the way I dance. This is a practice that works as an improvisational tool that can be applied to any dance form where the aim is to find freedom in movement with our body. "


Bio:


Kaide Gonzalez is a Swedish/Chilean dancer, who specialises in House and Hip Hop dance. He started his professional training at Åsa Folkhögskola in Sweden and this is where he deepened his knowledge of the different street dance styles and later moved to Amsterdam (The Netherlands) to study a Dance Teacher education at the Academy of Theatre and Dance. Alongside this he frequently participates in battles internationally and has been teaching at various places in Sweden and The Netherlands.

Both as a dancer and choreographer, Kaide aims to be free from labels while being mindful of, but not limited by the Hip Hop dance experience that he has gathered in his career. He is intrigued by the notion of an ‘’in-between’’ and wants to invite his audience to experience something that disregards genres. He is currently developing his own movement practice that lays the foundation for his dance, which he calls ‘Leviathan Flow’.

"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."

Contemporary

"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."

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.

"In this workshop, we'll delve into the interplay between you, your body, other bodies, your surroundings, and sound. By continuously scanning our bodies, we can increase our understanding of our perceptions. 

Moving and shifting our gaze helps us to stay «in the now», but also helps us with our imaginations, dreams and creativity. This practice is a research in my works, my dance and my being. The tools are collected from various choreographers and artistic practices that inspires me and reminds me of the incredible power and ability we gain through dancing.

We will be moving together throughout the 90 minutes, exploring your own dance. "

It revolves around the idea connected to both floor work and partnering - Generating energy by dropping your weight.

The main objective of the method is to multiply the body's energy with this principle and use that energy to amplify slides, jumps, tricks, etc., and at the same time to be able to land as smoothly as possible no matter the situation.

To execute these things Zero Space method also includes a collection of exercises based on a range of training methods and techniques. Such as animal-based movement training, capoeira, yoga, kung-fu, breakdance, judo, and more. To increase the overall body strength, build stamina, diversify movement articulations, expand the mind-muscle connectivity, and prevent injuries.

An important part of Beno's teaching is the transposition of the ideas that we as dancers apply while being vertical and use them also when we go into the floor.

How to maintain the axis? How to counter direct energy? An how to train our body, to be able to receive the floor as well as the soles of our feet.

The workshop is a combination of movement exploration, physical training, studying principles and moves, improvisation, and learning dance phrases"

Liza Stokseth

Jazz  


"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!"

Linda Hayford

I samarbete med Malmö Dance Week

" SHIFTING POP" Torsdag 2 november kl. 10.00-11.30


"Shifting Pop is a sensory and emotional exploration of popping to guide the dancer toward a

different body awareness and a metamorphosis in order to expand the range of possibilities.


Shifting Pop finds its roots in the technique of popping, a funk-style dance born in the United

States Linda Hayford excels in. Created and developed by the choreographer and dancer in

the course of experimentation and creation (her solo Shapeshifting, the duo AlShe/Me, and

the recent piece Recovering), this corporeal language unfolds through isolated figures and the

positioning of the body."

BIO:

Although Linda Hayford is best known as an ambassador of popping, her dance

practice has evolved through the encounter between genres and moves. Taking

a crossover of styles as her starting point, the choreographer seeks an aesthetic

focused on metamorphosis.

Week 27 Wednesday and Friday , 5 and 7 July kl. 9.30-11.00

Week 34 Tuesday and Thursday, 22 + 23 August kl. 9.30-11.00

Week 36 Tuesday and Thursday, 5 + 7 September 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."

Daniel Persson

Contemporary- Dynamic Mixture

V.29 17 + 19 juli Måndag och onsdag 9.30-11.00

“In “Dynamic Mixture”, I draw inspiration from a variety of techniques such as Release-, Floorwork-, Body Weather and embodiment of voice. The structure combines set material/phrases alongside complex frameworks in which the dancers work through their bodies in togetherness and through individual pathways. I work from a direction of trust for the physical body and urgency to move, in order to move past our initial expectations of our capacity. The aim of the class is for the dancers to leave warmer, lighter and stronger with a sense of play resonating.”

Elia Patrici

Contemporary

Vecka 31 Monday & Wednesday 31/7 + 2/8 Kl.9.30-11.00

Vecka 32 Tuesday 8/8 Kl.9.30-11.00


A mixture of the both below:

"This technique class aims to address dynamic movements and acrobatics through the understanding of softness in the body.

We study basic and advanced principles of parkour (free-running), floor acrobatics and handstand techniques to emphasize the possibilities of hands and feet on the floor. We practice running, falling and jumping as separate elements themselves. Through the development of the class we will start applying the separate elements to find efficient and soft dynamic pathways into and out of the floor, as well as locomotive movements in space. Between learning set material and studying specific single movements, we play games to open the mind for creativity and to each other, and to strengthen and soften muscle and joint structures.

Improvisation into making dances

This is a physical technique class for professional dancers. It aims towards developing an understanding of possible bridges from improvisation into performativity to make dances for others, all in the frame of instant composition. The class is built into three parts. From individually warming up the body within different tasks, we move into group work, understanding different ways of listening and reacting towards other bodies improvising in the space. The class then smoothly transitions into creating dances that are being watched by others. We reflect on the importance of making work for other people and not only for oneself. From the moment we make instantly composed pieces I support an understanding of one's own work to find clarity on why we make work for others to watch. My work is influenced by studies from Katie Duck, Kristie Simson and Julyen Hamilton. "

Elia Patrizi grew up in Berlin, where he practiced parcour and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu throughout his youth.

About Gaga

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. "

Vecka 4, 24-26/1 Workshop observera tiden!

Tisdag onsdag & torsdag kl.11.15-14.15.


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."

"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. "

Sarah Stanley

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. "

Vecka 48

Tisdag till torsdag 29/11, 30/11, 1/12

Baclet 9.30-11.00

Impro för nya träningsformer 11.15-12.45

Baclet:

"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."

Vecka 33, 15/8-19/8 Måndag till Fredag 

Morgonklass GAGA 9.30-10.45

Repertoire Ohad Naharin 11.00 - 12.30


About Gaga

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.
