Physiological training from a dance perspective, aiming to harness and refine an all-round availability for a multitude of movement potentials. Very physical ‘technique’ class (buckets of sweat and sore thighs!) dealing with coordination, musicality, stamina, adaptability and other physiological aspects of strength, balance, power, flexibility; all approached with an attention to dynamism, finesse, and enjoyment - expect loud bouncy music!
Ian Garside (UK/ES) discovered contemporary dance through classical theatre. He completed his vocational training at Laban (UK) & P.A.R.T.S. (BE). Since 2010 he has performed with the likes of Punchdrunk (Shanghai), Liquid Loft/ Chris Haring (Vienna) & the seminal DV8 Physical Theatre (London). Alongside performing Ian teaches extensively. His passion for pedagogy is fed by the variety of experiences and approaches that people bring to the encounter. His passion for performing comes from a desire to engage people in an experienced process of reception and reflection.
