Strength, Chaos and Specificity with Jenni Large
A Contemporary Dance Intensive
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Fundamental to Jenni’s practice is the principle that positive self-esteem is essential for creative flow and playfulness. By prioritising joy, care and catharsis, Jenni’s classes focus on increasing ease, flow and strength by gradually building the complexity of pathways that traverse in and out of the floor. She translates multiple forms into a contemporary dance framework, including; Body Mind Centering (Bonnie Bainbridge-Cohen), Yoga, Gymnastics, Pole Dancing and Contemporary Dance Techniques.
The workshop will involve warm-ups and group improvisation, working with tools that heighten self-awareness and spatial composition to create live choreography. Expect to ignite your capacity for endurance, chaos, connectivity and sensitivity through dance, discussion and performing together.
