Natalie’s class begins gently with a mixture of task based and set combinations exploring the body’s natural responses and connecting with those around us. This idea of together-ness is carried throughout the class as we shift in to more playful and expansive phrase work celebrating your individuality and choice making within a group.
Natalie enjoys exploring the balance between fall and resolve through movement and how we can use the weight of the body to generate and initiate dance.
Natalie is a Welsh dance artist currently based in London. She trained at Central School of Ballet before going on to work with companies Ballet de l’Opera National du Rhin and National Dance Company of Wales.
She has collaborated on a variety of research and performance projects with people including Ben Wright/bgroup, Laïla Diallo, Jo Fong, Adrienne Hart, Eleesha Drennan and most recently Theo Clinkard.
This Level 1 class is for participants with some knowledge of contemporary dance and over a years’ dance experience. You will look at a more developed dance vocabulary and a greater sense of body awareness in the space. Classes will work with longer phrases aimed at increasing physicality, performativity and musicality. Working with a more codified structure, you will prepare the body for an increase in activity throughout the class.
