Professional Class: Ben McEwen
Flying Low is a technique initiated by David Zambrano that uses simple movement patterns and principles (such as spiralling and alternating between expansion and cohesion) to dance our whole selves in, out and along the floor with speed, efficiency... and pleasure! The Borough Hall at Greenwich Dance is such a great space with a beautiful slidey floor, so woven into the flying low we'll be taking a look at how to run without slipping and slide without stopping!
Long trousers and covered shoulders are highly recommended
