Workshop & Training & 'Body Switch

Workshop & Training & 'Body Switch'

We will start with an awareness of the inner body in time, and space. By constantly switching the weight it gradually builds up in to a Warm-up based on modern contemporary techniques and this leads into longer dance sequences. An important focus is placement of the body, coordination, rhythm as well as movement dynamics in space.


Ruben builds up muscular strength on a conscious and natural level by using the weight properly and in a most practical and functional way, using body memory to go deeper into muscle structure to achieve safe body alignment which as efficient as possible. He encourages the participant’s imagination to move the body parts. He then guides them in the most extreme different shapes and directions, which ultimately could lead into unexpected and surprising movements phrases and situations.
