Master Class « Vertigo Dance Company Repertoire » – Ruth Valensi

Ruth Valensi stage danseThe Master Class will be divided to two parts :
It will start with a Feldenkrais and contemporary class to warm up and raise the awareness of body.
Second part will be learning repertoire of Vertigo focusing on material from White Noise a piece that deals with the clash between an inner sense of quiet, the body’s complete surrender to gravity’s pull and the noise surrounding us-the buzz that lurks inside us all.

Morning class:

This contemporary class unpacks our utilization of the body’s most human patterns, such as crawling, rolling, running, and falling through space. We research these patterns with the goal of promoting the most anatomically efficient pathways for ease of movement, thus extending the reach of our bodies. The class is inspired by the principles of the Feldenkrais method and the Axis syllabus approach.
