What do the classes entail?
The weekly classes are usually held at the Ark T centre and last two hours. Cecilia will begin with a warm-up concentrating on getting the whole body moving and ready for the next section; this is where more formal floor exercises and set routines are learnt, and dancers are able to understand more about dance technique. The final part gives the dancers a chance to improvise, choreograph and create movement, this is usually on a theme given by Cecilia, who encourages the individual creativity of each dancer and all members of the group benefit from constructive feedback and support from each other. In this way dance is created for performance in informal settings and also for events at local theatres and other venues.
