This January we welcome Jazmin Chiodi to Dance Limerick. Jazmin joins us as our first guest teacher of 2021 for Professional Morning Classes.

About Jazmín's Class

The class will be adapted to a Zoom format and taking in consideration peoples spaces. I'm aiming to share a moment together and to offer a frame for exploration during a technical class we will focus on body organisation, developing a finer perception and awareness of weight/support organisation, in relation with clarity of intention and directions during the diverse dance exercises proposed in class.

The structure of the class aims to qualify movement and lead the dancer to explore on clarity and efficiency, while promoting the physicality of dance. The work is based on my own dance practice developed over the years, as well as takes source in techniques such as, Flying Low, Klein, Release, Alexander Method, Feldenkrais and Yoga.
