Taught by: Jasmin Rituper
Location: Tree Tops Shala
A dynamic dance fusion class where we use elements from modern/contemporary dance, urban street styles and some acrobatic movements, all put together into a choreography where we play with rhythm and musicality executing the movement phrase.
In my Urban contemporary class we fuse modern/contemporary dance with urban/ street aesthetics with some influences from martial arts and acrobatics. This class will start with a solid warm up, circular movement, isolations, some release
techniques, floor work and dynamic stretching to prepare the body moving into different levels including going upside-down.
We continue to work on a routine with a strong emphasis on music and rhythm. I love to fuse different dance and movement styles, always searching for more ways to express a story, an opinion or an emotion through our bodies.
I have a strong use of acrobatic elements through my yoga and circus training and love to create strong physical routines .
Another huge influence in my choreographic work are creature and animalistic movements for capturing and playing with these essentials and shapes
