Lenka Vagnerová
Talk through your body

Dance, as Lenka conceives it, is able to awaken imagination in the spectator, stir emotions, it can enshrine values and communicate things that cannot be communicated in words. For Lenka, the basic building block in training is to understand the body through imagination. In this way we are able to reveal in the body many various movement qualities and principles, to find a specific dynamic, coordination and chiefly inside logic.
Lenka´s training system is based on the principle of “the body as a puppet”. This method strives to achieve the maximum kinetic possibilities in a person’s body without needless muscle tension and stress, develops plasticity, musicality, the ability to react to impulses, we learn to listen to our own inner rhythm, perceive the space around us and listen to the others.

We will work individually, in partnering, we try to touch theatrical situations through physical action, … We will “talk through our bodies”. -Lenka Vagnerová

The daily class will systemathicaly guid you through several excercises, developed from the basic principles into the very complex ones which we will develop continueously, smoothly and logically. Step by step we would build movement qualities, work with coordination, dynamics, movement transitions, musicality and imagination. From the floor to standing.
