Ben graduated from TrinityLaban before going on to complete the training cycle at P.A.R.T.S. (BE), where he had his first opportunity to study with David Zambrano, the initiator of Flying Low. Now he regularly works as a performer and researcher for, among others; Charlotte Spencer Projects, Joon Dance, Francesco Scavetta/Wee and Vera Tussing. Alongside performing he teaches at conservatoires, universities and professional classes throughout Europe. He also practices Aikido at Tetsushinkan/MovingEast and enjoys barefoot running and wandering amongst mountains with a small tent and a big smile.
We'll be taking a look at floorwork, through the material of Flying Low. This is a technique initiated by David Zambrano that uses simple movement patterns and principles (such as spiralling and alternating between expansion and cohesion) to dance our whole selves in, out and along the floor with speed, efficiency... and pleasure! We'll take a detailed look at the material, breaking it down to find functions that work for each of us, then we'll put it back together for some full-bodied dancing!
**Booking is essential as the class has limited spaces.
