Akane’s classes are based on the Limón technique and will introduce principles of release and breath into your practice. Classes will start with release-based floor-work to increase mobility in the joints, followed by technical work to develop fluidity of movement and increased awareness of core muscles and spine alignment. Dynamic combinations, movement themes and technical sequences will give participants the opportunity to develop strength, agility and control as well as movement interpretation.
Akane has an MA in Contemporary Dance from London Contemporary Dance School and is also qualified Pilates teacher. She has performed in England, Germany and Japan and worked with Maika Klaukien, Andy Papas, Genau and Japanese contemporary dance company Maikobo. Akane was invited by Shiho Kanazawa Dance Company in Nagoya to teach and direct performances. She has started a new dance company, Dance Theatre Red, with composer and musician Trimmer and is currently choreographing a major new work to be performed in Japan in 2018.
Our Level 3 class is a dynamic class focusing on higher level technical abilities and an increase in physical fitness. Complex movement combinations and content will cover more advanced principles such as agility and the use of weight whilst simultaneously increasing musical awareness through a range of tempos and rhythms. You will increase your versatility in moving and introduce your own uniqueness to the movement with confidence.
