Online Movement Class with Felipe Ortiz
September 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Movement just for the pleasure of connecting with your body. Improve the possibilities of your body in motion as you develop your mobility, strength, and flexibility.
Through some dance, physical theater, acrobatics, martial arts and movement techniques we will dive into a deep connection with our body and it´s possibilities. We seek for a type of body that is expressive, available, and ready to react.
All bodies are different so we will explore what our possibilities and limits are.
This workshop is designed for actors, improvisers, dancers, circus artists and in general to everyone that is interested in exploring and connecting to movement
Dates: September 1, 8, 15 and 22, 4 Tuesdays
Mxium Students: 10
Prerequisite: Some movement experience or active in general
