10:00 am Contemporary Dance – Theater Lounge
Analysing the importance of the spine in connection with the center and the body extremities, as well as the importance of being conscious of movement vectors, we will play with level changing, weight transfer, spatial awareness and energy management. What do we have to release or how do we redirect the energy of the movement in order to find a momentum? How to navigate between higher and lower levels – going in and out of the floor – using minimum effort? The classes are developed through very physical and dynamic choreographic compositions.
Open for all levels.
18:15 Classic hand-balancing – Movement room
This handstand class is aimed at beginners as well as advanced people. while the exercises changes regularly the structure stays the same. It includes warm-up, tension exercises, technique training, strength training and stretching.
With constant participation, body tension, coordination, balance, strength and stretching will be improved step by step and qualifies you to do a safe and healthy handstand.
With the advanced students I am working on various figures, press-up and one-arm techniques.
For those who prefer to drink beer on Fridays, who are impatient or simply want the complete program I now offer an additional Monday class. Same space, same time, new tricks.
18:15 Trapeze – Aerial Training Room
In her trapeze class, Jana pays special attention to breathing techniques, momentum and beats, inner strength, and ergonomic training. The class is open to all levels. She rather focuses on basic details and aerial body knowledge than teaching tricks.

18:15 Silks – Aerial Training Room
This class is suitable for people who are interested in learning the basics of aerial silks as well as for those who are advanced and want to focus on transitions, creativity and expression in the air.
18:15 Contemporary Dance – Theater Lounge
This class explores the body’s gravity and center as a starting point for the movement. We use strengthening elements and release based exercises through movement structures. We also play with level changing, weight transfer, spatial awareness and energy management by using floor work. What do we have to release or how do we redirect the energy of the movement in order to find a momentum? How to work the connections and transitions from one movement to another, allowing the body to pass from flowing to fragmented qualities?
Energy managing tools will be taught as a way to improve the ability of spending only the necessary amount of energy in order to perform certain movements.
This training requires physicality and aims to create an opportunity for the body to fully express itself.
For dancers, performers, acrobats and anyone interested in moving.

18:15 Dynamic Handstands – Movement Room
This course is aimed at people who want to broaden their handstand horizon, whose static handstand training lacks a dynamic component and at those who simply want to move a little differently. It includes warm-up, static and dynamic pre-exercises, technique training, strength training and stretching.
Various ascents and descents are trained (such as backward roll-to-handstand, makako-to-handstand, handstand-1/2-turn-roll, handstand-to-KipUp) as well as the classic handstand. A further focus is on learning correct and safe spotting as well as their application during the lessons.
For a more balanced and effective training I also offer an static handstand training on Friday. Same time, same space.

Main focus of this silks class is: basic body and movement knowledge for aerial and upside-down work, silks logic, and precise details. This provides the ability to create own choreographies and broadens the repertoire of tricks.
