Advance registration required

In this dance class, Marie Claire Forté invites us to be in relationship with oneself, others, and the world through dance. We warm up to activate sensation and find support with short proposals from dance, interval training and Pilates. Then, dance is at the forefront.

Set combinations, loosely inspired from ballet and related techniques, invite us to access our strengths and understand where we can improve coordination and integration. Open proposals with precise cues, sometimes physical, sometimes metaphorical, encourage us to dance with our whole history in movement. You will sense, feel, look and listen, you will explore with rigour and (hopefully) pleasure while stimulating imagination and sensation.

Maximum capacity : 30 people
