[openclass] brings you May’s takeover with Ruth Valensi from Vertigo Dance Company. An affordable two hour class in South East London.

[class description] The first hour of morning class will unpack the use of the body’s most human patterns, such as crawling, rolling, running, and falling through space. We’ll research these patterns with the goal of promoting the most anatomically efficient pathways for ease of movement, thus extending the reach of our bodies. The class is inspired by the principles of the Feldenkrais method and the Axis syllabus approach.

The second hour of class will focus on Vertigo dance company’s repertoire. Vertigo Dance Company (Israel), established by Noa Wertheim and Adi Shaal, has developed a distinct artistic language promoting social and community awareness through contemporary dance. Vertigo Dance Company’s repertoire is permeated with their holistic and spiritual movement approach creating a collage of intricate singular dance sagas inviting viewers and co-creators on an exciting and challenging enchanted journey.

[biography] Ruth is an Israeli performer, dancer, and Feldenkrais practitioner. Upon completing her studies at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance in 2005, she began working with a variety of Israeli dance companies and independent choreographers. In 2008 became a member of the Vertigo Dance Company and worked there as a dancer, teacher, and rehearsal director of the Vertigo International Dance Program.
