Susanne Bentley’s workshop starts at ground level: strengthening centre and upper body by travelling across the floor with set material or improvisations. With a strong centre we can move fluidly and economically on all levels.
The focus then shifts to passing through different levels, exploring inverted material. Emphasis is placed on efficient use of the body. We use gravity, momentum and weight of body parts, spirals, direction and softness to find fluidity and ease in, out and over the floor, building up to a final phrase to end the class.
Get Down! is inspired by Susanne Bentley’s passion for moving on all levels and in all directions. Her focus is on a playful, supportive environment to approach challenging material and intense physicality. Participants should come expecting to sweat and have fun.
