In Thea´s heels class we will take a closer look at what dancing in a heel actually does to the movement expression. How it changes your posture, how you can enhance and work with the features this posture gives you and, how to use this to express yourself physically in an elongated femme way. Thea tries to incorporate individual sensuality in a way that makes bodies feel good and welcome, and hopefully push some boundaries- exploring how you can play with it and manifest it in your movements.
We will go through drills of footwork with the basis of club dances.
We will go through floor technique and drills with the basis of erotic floorwork from stripper dancing combined with contemporary floorwork.
During the week we will play with sensuality exercises, and I will teach different routines where you can incorporate what we have practiced, let loose and hopefully have fun!
All bodies are welcome! Just be aware that we will approach movement with a feminine expression.
Bring your own heels. I recommend wearing long pants/leggins since we will be doing floorwork. Bring knee pads if you have sensitive knees.
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.
