ABOUT THE CLASS
This class is meant to combine intelligence and creativity, awareness and harmony, intuition and aesthetics. With an active mind, and through a moving body, Stefano will explore with participants the concepts of space, weight and fluidity, in order to find some functional dynamics and a deeper knowledge of our
structure and unity. While experimenting with these concepts and clearing them by occasional and guided improvisations,
participants will also study some combinations and sequences which, through the use of gravity and ground, will let them discover and enjoy new qualities of movement.Leaving the memories of old experiences behind, the students will discover new ways of facing
their techniques through different space levels – floor and more – without forgetting lightness and freedom.
