Contemporary Dance by Lisard Tranis (Spain)
DFM Workshops 28 July
Paying attention to the base of our body we will focus our attention on how we use our feet to inform the way we dance and the way we can yield to the floor to support ourselves through the flow of movement. Drawing power from our feet and legs we will enable the rest of the body to express itself freely and experience continuous movement. The energy in our body never stops, even where there is stillness.
