Find your space in the room, feel free to move around, follow your feet, connect to your body and your muscles – use the whole room…move your arms freely, close your eyes, sense your feet to the ground, stretch your arms upwards, shake your head loose, roll up your spin with an inhale…The dance is under way.
We are going to listen inside, be in the moment and see what happens. It starts with FLOWING around the floor and then connecting to a partner to do a comfortable dance in togetherness. Jonas invites us to find a dialogue in our dance. The music is still soft and people are moving gracefully.
In the STACCATO the music is intensified and hard-edged. The movements follow the rhythm, arms are expressed while feet are stomping rhythmically on the floor and all kinds of sound, from the participants, fills the room The mood is high and the sweat is dripping. Some of us need to take a break…
During the CHAOS session anything can happen and Lots of different dancing styles appear. Jonas invites us to feel alive: Use your in-breath, use your out-breath – and anything that is true for you – in any direction!
During LYRICS we are called to relax, listen if there is any tension in our bodies, the music and the rythm calms down. Connect to each other like wind breeze, allow each other space without words, stretch your muscles, says Jonas. Somebody starts doing yoga positions. And we end up with something like a sweeping waltz.
