RIVA the Faroese Dance Company

RIVA has developed a physical practice that explores ways of morphing floor and partnerwork. This is done through using principles from floorwork and applying it to working with other bodies while keeping a constant point of contact. Focusing on the flux between listening and following when working with a partner and organically switching roles. 

You will get exercises to understand some practical mechanics rooted in counter balance, weight shifting, playing with the collective and individual center of gravity and maintaining a point of contact to find ease when working with another body. 

We will finish class by tapping into some of RIVA’s repertoire to get a sense of the technique in practice. 

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

How to get there?
Studio 3 is located on the ground floor with step-free access from the main entrance.
Continue straight towards the changing rooms next to the foyer. Studio 3 is located straight ahead inside to the right.

The building is accessible for wheelchair users, and there is the possibility of using an elevator for access to all floors. Accessible toilets and gender-neutral toilets are available on the ground floor.
We kindly ask you to arrive 15 minutes before the class, in time for check-in with your QR code on the ticket 🙂

All members can participate in Dansehallerne’s training activities – a year-round program with approximately 5 days of training per week and now also workshops every other week. This is for all professional members regardless of background in dance training, and it is also possible to participate in a drop-in class.
