The flying low classes focus mainly on the dancer’s relationship with the floor. Utilizing clear movement patterns that involve breathing, speed and the release of energy throughout the body in order to activate the relationship between the center and the joints, moving in and out of the ground more efficiently by maintaining a centered state. There is a focus on the skeletal structure that will help improve the dancer’s physical perception and alertness. The class includes partnering work and movement phrases, which explore the primary laws of physics: cohesion and expansion.
When you are standing, the whole room is standing. When you are moving, the whole room is moving. The body is constantly spiralling, whether running or standing. These spirals help the dancers into the floor and out of the floor. These spirals already exist; the class focuses on finding them. The spirals help the dancer see themselves and the room from all sides. The spirals propel the class all over the room, both on the ground and upright.
