Akane’s classes are based on Limón technique, introducing principles of release and breath. Classes will start with floor work to increase mobility in the joints, followed by technical work to develop fluidity of movement and increased awareness of core muscles and spine alignment. Dynamic combinations, movement themes and technical sequences will give participants the opportunity to develop strength, agility and control as well as movement interpretation.
Our Level 3 class focuses on higher level technical abilities and an increase in physical fitness. Complex movement combinations and content will cover more advanced principles such as agility and the use of weight, whilst simultaneously increasing musical awareness through a range of tempos and rhythms. You will increase your versatility in moving and introduce your own unique style to the movement, with confidence.
