Paolo de Venecia Gile
contemporary: Thrive, not Survive

This class embraces influences from martial arts, Feldenkrais method, commercial dances, night/club dances and concert dances. We will deal with our attention as material, to access softness, explosivity & precision as movement qualities to access a playful state and unlock a sense of calculated recklessness. We will begin by tuning in through breath & pressure exercises – on our own, against the wall, with partners and across the floor.

Through movement meditations, we will immerse ourselves in feeling & sensation, to widen our expressive palate and feel ready for the rest of the day.

You can expect serious and silly movement drills for coordination, strength and mobility. Score-based improvisations will allow us to practise negotiating space and practice performing – for ourselves & for others. Shoes recommended, but other options are just as welcome.

The classes are held at KU.BE, Dirch Passers Allé 4, 2000 Frederiksberg in studio: Zen 1.

How to get there?
Zen 1 is located on third floor, please use the backstairs to access the studio.
Go in via the main entrance on first floor, keep going straight ahead towards the changing rooms next to the climbing area on the first floor, open the door in the far end and go up the stairs until you arrive on the third floor. Zen 1 is through the door on your right side.

Accessibility requires a little extra preparation. The studios are equipped for wheelchair users. It is possible to use the lift for access up to the 3rd floor. If you wish to use this, please let us know in advance, as the studio you have to go through via the lift is sometimes booked.
We kindly ask you to meet up 15 minutes prior to class, so there is time for “self check in” with your QR code on the ticket.

Only as a member, you can take part in Dansehallerne’s training activities – a year-round program with approximately 5 days of training per week. This is for all professional members no matter background in dance training, and it is possible to drop in✨ International guests can also join training for free for up to 1 month.
