As a pre-Christmas bonus, delighted to welcome back Marina Collard for a one-off class in the contemporary series on Monday 9th December 11.00am-1.00pm. A great opportunity, not to be missed! Marina is currently teaching at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance during term time, so we need to make the most of her limited availability.
Please pass the word to colleagues who may wish to take advantage of this; price is £10 for the class for dancers, and as usual the class is open to artists who would like to sketch for a contribution of £5.
About Marina: Marina Collard has performed with Carol Brown Dances, CandoCo, Siobhan Davies Dance Company, Dog Kennel Hill Project, Ersatz Dance Company and Joe Moran among others.
As a dance maker, Marina has an ongoing creative partnership with film maker Tom Paine. She recently presented work at the GOlive Festival in London and will be performing in the Moving with the Times platform in Dancin’ Oxford 2014. Now based in Oxford Marina continues to teach professional class and company class both nationally and internationally as well as at Laban and LCDS.
Marina writes: “The class begins with a slow exploration of the breath, the midline leading to finding connection through the whole skeletal system. In bringing the whole body into a state of awareness, we continue this exploration in moving. The class has a very clear sense of progression through set exercises which eventually lead to more complex material. This material is articulate, detailed and encourages the dancer to listen to their own sense of weight in the moment of moving and to be playful with their musicality.”
