The Shared Practice was developed by a group of independent dance artists in SE London in 2012 to make space and time to freely move together and to embed a regular practice to bring awareness to what it means to move to us personally and in exchange with one another. By sharing the space we find ourselves in an open source environment where everything that happens is anticipated in some way and forms part of our journey and a reflection of some kind. The facilitation is light and concerns a navigation to ensure people have a sense of sharing this journey and being able to deal with what it means to follow your own impulses. … By allowing curiosities we lead a presence in space that unfolds in moving. Through curiosities we bring awareness to our preferences, our values such as aesthetics or content and we acknowledge our current state of being.
Donation £4 … if you can, if you can’t simply support it by not rushing in or out, the space is open from 11:15am, please come before 11:30am to allow enough time to get ready.

Do you want to release and energise through movement?
Do yourself a favour through a creative and fun workout, through the art of dance, which softens and strengthens you at the same time. The class improves among others your alignment, flexibility and coordination, through the joy of being embodied and the poetry of bodily being.
Come and try this contemporary dance class with a focus on the soul in flow and the body grooving in relationship to gravity.
Join with your first taster class for free.
Every Wednesday until the 10/7/19 (apart from the 29/5) from 5.30pm – 7pm
The Green Community Centre in Nunhead, 5 Nunhead Green, London SE15 3QQ
We start with a flowing warm up: releasing and energizing, tuning into our breath and our weight in relationship to gravity, feeling ourselves and our soma.
The class moves through circling and spiralling, opening and closing, shifting weight on and off balance, moving the Chi, working on grounding and projection, dynamic alignment and connections, oiling the articulations, cultivating strength and softness.
We will move on to more complex movement patterns in a fun and funky way: working on co-ordination and articulation, dynamics and rhythm.
The class will conclude with a bigger dance phrase, combining and playing with movement material, including footwork, travelling through space and changing directions, to get us dancing in a groovy and elaborate way.
The class includes structured material, as well as improvisation and movement exploration. We will focus on inner and outer awareness and the relationship of body parts, our relationships with each other and the space‚ all in a spirit of curiosity and joy.
