Mixed Teachers Class Descriptions

Yael Flexer

Yael teaches a dynamic, release-based class. It begins with exploratory improvisation work, alone or with a partner, and moves on to formal exercises building towards dynamic movement sequences. Emphasis is placed on momentum, inversion and an expansive use of space combined with core strength.

Lyndsey McConville

Lyndsey’s class focuses on an energised and dynamic use of the body, together with strong articulation and clarity when moving.

Abi Mortimer

Abi Mortimer, Co-Artistic Director of Lila Dance, leads a creative and challenging class that begins with focussing on ease of connection between the centre and the periphery.  

The class builds towards articulating the whole self through a complex and athletic phrase that sends energy into the edges of the body whilst maintaining an ease and economy in effort. There is a focus on the development of a strong core that allows for a generous shifting of the centre and a dynamic transference of weight, with attention to maintaining freedom in the joints. Occasionally, artists employ small moments of improvisation that lead into phrases of similar thought processes.

Kristina and Sade; Dynamics, Rhythm and Texture

This is a physical contemporary class that will involve strong, complex technical sequences in and out of the floor, focusing on performance/stamina and commitment throughout the session. Improvisation will also be explored as part of self-development. The significant factors for the class are to develop the dancer’s creative mind, drive from passion, determination, strength, musicality, and most importantly, an intention/honesty in whatever choice they make throughout the session.

Kristina and Sade’s style has been inspired and developed from working with artists such as Akram Khan (fusion of Kathak and contemporary dance), Retina Dance Company (release and contact work), Gregory Maqoma (Afro-fusion dance), Bawren Tavaziva (Zimbabwean choreographer), Vincent Mantsoe (Afro-fusion from Soweto, South Africa), Vocab Dance (London-based African, Contemporary dance) and Henri Oguike (classical contemporary-based on Forsythe and Cunningham techniques).
