WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

This workshop will begin with an initial warm up, followed by a more complex movement material and a dynamic focus on the concept of “attack and release”. The technique allows joints to relax and energy to flow with maximum efficiency. Jose, himself, often uses counts to influence the dynamic of the movement and spinning to engage the core. All of this work will prepare your body to travel, exploring the broadest movement in space, whilst making fast, clean transitions from large to detailed movement.

No Venue

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
