Sparsh Studio for Performing Arts


(Paris, France)

Dance Bridges Festival is delighted to present a modern dance workshop with French artist, Lucas Viallefond, a modern dancer and a teacher at the Paris Opera School. http://lucasviallefond.com/en/

Workshop Description: The two-hour class is based on the Jooss-Leeder technique, developed by Hans Züllig and Jean Cébron, with contemporary barre work.

The precise consciousness of one’s body in the space and its dynamics are the ground of this approach. The technical work at the barre allows the upper side of the body and the arms to flow by being well aware of the weight, the swing, the possible oppositions and dissociations. The center of the body is in the continuity of the barre. It uses both the movement quality and sensations, the objective being to master sensations for a better precision and understanding of movement.

Suitability: The class is most suitable for dancers with previous dance training and will be of an Intermediate/Advanced level (age 13+).
