Kristian Refslund
Contemporary Ballet

This contemporary ballet is based on the principles of the technique and how it can function better for a diverse body and therefore serve us as a tool and not as something we should be from an aesthetic point of view.  

In practicality it means we will explore coordinations, rhythms and movement language as usual within the ballet realm – but the aim is to make it work for and with the body we have by applying simple principles of weight, just the right amount of muscle power and correct placement and alignment according to our own instrument.  

By deepening the understanding of these principles within our own bodies architecture we can play with this language and make it our own, challenging our mind and body keeping a healthy frame of mind and curious approach.  

In Kristians experience it is all about the minds approach and less about the ´look´ of it. Let´s go on imaginary point shoes, deepen our plies to give space to our pelvis and free our mind while improving our capabilities and technical skills of directions in the body associated to the space surrounding us.

The classes are held at Dansehallerne, Franciska Clausens Plads 27 DK-1799 Copenhagen V in Studio 3.
