Upcoming Event
We have scheduled a Making Tracks Dance Master Class with Shelley Maxwell on Thursday 29  March 2018. This Cuban Contemporary Master Class will be based on the Graham Technique.
The Master Class
This high energy Cuban Contemporary Master Class combines Graham principles with contemporary movements and utilises the poly-rhythmic rhythm structures common in the Cuban Contemporary movement. In the class you will explore numerous principles of contraction and release as well as incorporating spinal manipulations and travelling sequences. Exercises will explore the shifting of weight through space whilst demanding a sense of attack and musical dynamism.
