The Deep Dance Series Presents: Gisela Creus
Gisela's class begins with a set sequence of continuous stretches and articulate movements of the spine and limbs that will allow us to connect with ourselves, our body and its center. We will place focus on breathing to help us warm up, energize and tone the muscles and joints as well as to open awareness of the balanced body and its/our presence in the space. In continuance, we will explore a succession of moves and some traveling exercises to challenge the body to be available and efficient in relationship to one another’s. We will put into action a dynamic-high-energy dance phrase that encompass floor work, technical sequencing and acrobatic body vocabulary, all of which Gisela has acquired through her years of contemporary dance work in Europe. Gisela is a creative that uses improvisation and explorative formations so the body can articulate one’s sense of character. Gisela's classes always have the aim of growing one’s individual voice through movement and to share it with others.
