We start with a flowing warm up: releasing and energizing, tuning into our breath and our weight in relationship to gravity, feeling ourselves and our soma.
The class moves through circling and spiralling, opening and closing, shifting weight on and off balance, moving the Chi, working on grounding and projection, dynamic alignment and connections, oiling the articulations, cultivating strength and softness.
We will move on to more complex movement patterns in a fun and funky way: working on co-ordination and articulation, dynamics and rhythm.
The class will conclude with a bigger dance phrase, combining and playing with movement material, including footwork, travelling through space and changing directions, to get us dancing in a groovy and elaborate way.
The class includes structured material, as well as improvisation and movement exploration. We will focus on inner and outer awareness and the relationship of body parts, our relationships with each other and the space‚ all in a spirit of curiosity and joy.

I draw on my extensive dance training and practice, particularly contemporary dance and release technique, as well as African dance, street dance and somatics. My teaching is further informed by my studies of Aikido, Tai Chi, Chi Gong and Shiatsu.
This class is open to everybody.
“I had a really good time at my first class with Tania. She is a really energetic teacher and taught me many cool moves I never thought about before. Its a great class and my body felt really good afterwards.” By Rome Magen.
