Flying Low

Probebühne 3 / 4.OG


Milan Herich’s Flying Low workshop mainly focuses on the dancer’s relationship to the floor. The class utilizes simple movement patterns that involve breathing, speed and releasing energy throughout the body to activate the relationship between the centre and the joints, moving in and out of the ground more efficiently by maintaining a centred state. Focus on the skeletal structure helps improve dancers’ physical perception and alertness. The class includes partnering work and movement phrases, which explore the primary laws of physics: cohesion and expansion. The workshop is based on the observation that the body is constantly spiralling, whether running or standing. These spirals help the dancers into and out of the floor, as well as propelling the class all over the room, both on the ground and upright. This is the flying low technique.
