Seán Curran

This class concentrates on a multi-disciplined approach to contemporary dance training and technique. Beginning with a thorough warm-up that incorporates ideas of release and principles of yoga, the class will progress using exercises derived from Cunningham and Limon techniques. There is an awareness of weight, flow, space, gesture anatomy and intention throughout the class.

This class is presented as part of Dancer from the Dance Festival of Irish Choreography
