What to expect from Lee's Class
Brummer's classes and workshops aspire to develop body awareness and conciousness of the endless physical resources that each individual inhabits. Technique is used as a tool which sophisticates unique possibilities and enables expression in a direct and physical way.
The class emphasises shifting of weight through space and movement qualities by referring to movement of the skeleton, different sensations and approaches. Improvisation based tasks and a series of combinations challenge an advanced dancer to use dynamics and musicality to their fullest while paying attention to details, reason and consequence and embracing ones physical individuality while doing so.
