The classes of Tom is aimed to bring inquiry, curiosity and space into the body. we will be working in solo and group formations. Each class is a research into a theme and a subject that is being built with different layers from the inner perception of the body into the kinesphere and the bigger body of the space that connects us.
Dance improvisation is a complete and full world of exploration of the body and your creativity in dance. It allows us to go into the body, talk and express ourselves in a non verbal way and find new ways to relate to other people, to our inner wishes and also to time, space and movement on stage. It can be enjoyed by anyone who wish to find the dancer within. In its highest level, Dance Improvisation is a delicate art, a meditation, a joy and a beautiful way to explore your true self and share it with other people.
As we are still in the Pandemic, we still need to refrain from Partnerwork, unfortunately.
