This class will give an in-depth look into the complex structures and dynamics of “warming up”. We will focus on cultivating this process which is considered as: Activation, engagement, opening up, transformation and sweat production. “Warming up” can be considered a necessary part of an everyday-practice. We will practice different strategies for engaging the body and examine the relations between sound, rhythm, bodies, space, and voice in order to find individual and communal ways of warming-up. The structure of each class will be based on exercises and processes I have learned or imagined to seduce the body to dance.

Bring your favorite clothes to sweat in.
