Floor Frames

Floor frames is a physical dance method where one can expect to work highly physically with floor work elements through contemporary dance. We will work with both basics on the floor as well as acrobatic elements within the work. The class is built up with improvisational elements and both work on the floor and off the floor.
Floor frames is a work where we frame the floor with our body.
We imagine the floor as a painting and we use the body as the artist. It is a way to understand how to use the body on the floor and in movement through flow, strength, flexibility and movement phrases.
You will be working on finding a new way for yourself to move with and on the floor. Through guided exercises and phrases you will be able to challenge yourself in high physicality, movement understanding and new flow and understandings.

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. International guests can also join training for free for up to 1 month.
