CLASSES & DAY DANCES
CLASSES and DAY DANCES provide a regular heart beat and practice space at a basic level.
3 hour sessions initially mark a rhythmic cycle around the earth year.
Day Dances extend to offer deeper exploration with a full day introduction.
Changing theme and focus each time we meet, both Classes and Day Dances act as a contiuum as one dance unfolds into the next.
Run for 3 hours per session and work to the frame drum, silence and pre-recorded music.
8 hour sessions offer an opportunity to go deeper as they open out class structure into a full day. Accompanied by the frame drum, silence and re-recorded music.
Impro based, prayerful, focused and committed Spiderflower: Contemporary Earth Dance is powerfully grounded in earth and in body.
Initiating the bodies innate ability to story tell from deep within, Spiderflower exists in the place where the choreography of the natural world meets that of human nature.
Through a dynamic and unique dance form that is at once precise yet in eternal freefall, 3 hour sessions accompanied by world music, silence and the frame drum combine basic technique with deeper exploration as we celebrate the individual theme of each dance.
Evening Dances create a complete cycle as they flow through the earth year. They are designed to support dancers, actors, musicians, artists and creatives from all walks of life develop a fluid connection with their internal landscape and creative choreography, at the same time as expanding their movement repertoire.
Perfect for newcomers to take Spiderflower: Contemporary Earth Dance for a spin, or experienced dancers to deepen their practice.
Dance intensives such as BEING HUMAN: (Or The Vulnerable Magician), THE SEA or THE FLOWER DRUM will carry a pre-requisite where dancers must be known to Spiderflower from 2018. Evening Dances provide rhythm and practice ground before and after any major dance.
