NO PRE-REGISTRATION FROM 25th OCTOBER
The corona restrictions are relaxing and we are allowed to go back to normal numbers of students per class – maximum 15 students per class. Therefore we have decided to trial our original system of just showing up to class and free-training without pre-registration for the next month and see how it works.
For free-training we can take a maximum of 24 people in total. Aerial spots will be allocated on a ‘first come first served’ basis, although please be considerate to other members and try to find a sharing compromise so that all have the opportunity to train a bit during the evening.
Please remember that Vuesch is a 3G venue – please present your vaccination/recovered/tested status to your supervisor or teacher. If you forget to test, we have a couple of self tests in the office that you can buy for 3€ before you start to train.
Enter and leave from the fire escape up the spiral staircase to the left-hand side of the building, the door will be open 15 mins before the class.

The courses take place between 18:15 and 20:15, or 10:00 and 12:00.

If you are unclear about any details, please feel free to contact your trainer directly.

  • 10:00 am Contemporary Dance – Theater Lounge

    Analyzing 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 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.
