The class explores the concept of virtuosity and the sensation of fluidity, drawing inspiration from Hungarian and Balkan traditional folk dance movement patterns and rhythms. The main objective is to help participants achieve a hyper-performative momentum and gain experience from the ecstatic and recessive state. It also encourages experimenting with a dignified, elegant posture while in motion, within the context of decorative abstraction. Participants will learn movement combinations through improvisation scores and short phrases.
