Epiic Movement with FRIIDOM

STORTYELLING & MOVEMENT PHILOSOPHY
SATURDAYS 12-1PM PST / 3-4PM EST / 8-9PM CEST

Epiic is a philosophy, which is expressed as a style of movement designed to awaken the artist within us all.
We all live in a highly stimulated and noisy world, so in quiet moments we ask ourselves questions of great importance: what are we, where do we come from, where are we going, and who are we striving to be? Epiic believes that in order to answer these questions, one must look within. Epiic also believes that anyone can be great, possess the qualities of an artist, and become inspired to create their own movement. However, that movement must come from deep inside-- the pressures of life's expectations, the truths we accept, created by society, and cemented in our own minds. True artistry and genius does not only come from “The Greats” alone, it also lives within the “Everyday Hero.” Through the use of orchestral & cinematic scores, improvised movement, and acting/theatre techniques, cast and audience are encouraged to connect with their inner child through art instillations and captivating performances. The challenge: “Live Free, Be Epic.”

ZENa-ROMMETT® FLOOR-BARRE

PAOLA GHIDINI (ITALY/AMSTERDAM)

TUESDAYS 1-2pm EST / 10-11am PST / 6-7pm CEST

Floor Barre® was developed in New York for dancers of major dance companies. Soon the method received a resounding success thanks to the fact that, although it was developed for dancers, it was hugely effective for non-dancers too. Floor-Barre® it’s a workout that creates a great connection between body and mind. Without the pressure of gravity, sequences are performed through controlled movements to educate the muscles how to maximize their strength and length, with no stress and without overloading the joints. Floor-Barre® focuses, in particular, on the acquisition of good body consciousness, postural improvement, core stability and muscle strength. It has been a pioneer in injury prevention and rehabilitation, recommended by many doctors and specialists.

CONTEMPORARY

KIBREA CARMICHAEL

THURSDAYS 11-12PM PST / 2-3PM EST / 7-8pm CEST

The theme will always be “make something out of nothing” even if it’s just a small gesture make that gesture mean something to you. I play a lot with textures, rhythms, styles and movement flow (the connection between one movement and the next). I classify my classes as contemporary even though it is a fusion of all styles. The movement/choreography allows you to put yourself in it heart, mind, body and soul. There are no limitations to what you can do.
