Linda Blomqvist
Dancing with pleasure and precision


This class focuses on and combines technical exercises that explore alignment, balance, momentum, weight, strength and agility with improvisational tasks that encourages us to be receptive, open and to attune with each other, oneself and the space we inhabit.

We will play and move between form and improvisation – enhancing our physical, intuitive and emotional intelligence. We will strive to do this from a place of togetherness, respect and critical thinking, with a starting point from our own very specific abilities and resources. Not striving to fit a mold but to explore the vast potential that each and one of us has.
This class is meant to prepare you for the day – however it may unfold. And hopefully also inform and inspire new ventures.

These classes will be offered together with the students at DDSKS as
part of their curriculum.
