The Vitruvian Man
This course has been conceived as the Vitruvian Man who stands in the shape of an X. The diagonal arms and legs meet at the centre, which is the power house of the body. This is where the emotional chakras and even the physical movement gains energy from. At the back of this centre is the spine, which is the central highway connecting the brain with the rest of the body.
There is a reason we say the brain is separate from the mind. This is truly scientific and biological. The spine is what connects the body and the brain through the nervous system. It is also called the seat of consciousness.
Importance of Spine
At FLUX, we give a lot of importance to spine, exploring it through the release technique. It brings the spine, the neck and the fluidity of the body together. This technique releases happy hormones in the body and makes us feel lighter and more content. In today’s hectic schedule, we rarely get any spare time to be with ourselves.
Here X Sense, a professional contemporary dance course in Bangalore, comes as a rescue. It is an opportunity for you to gift yourself some spare time to strengthen your relationship with your body and yourself. It will also increase the awareness of your body through dance and movement. Through continuously exploring the ways to move aesthetically and effectively, one can develop one’s own self. It imparts you with a new identity with its new ways of moving while learning the language of contemporary dance from our extensively as well as intensively trained professional dancers.
Dissolving The Muscular Armor in Our Professional Contemporary Dance Course in Bangalore
X Sense is a professional contemporary dance course in Bangalore in which you strengthen the senses of your body and acknowledge your muscular armor as named by Wilhelm Reich. Muscular armor means muscular rigidities that exist in any muscle group within a part of the body. You get an insight into which muscles are weaker, which ones are rigidified and which ones are ready and relaxed to jump into action. Therefore it also strengthens your inner voice that tells you your potential. To be on a journey with and within yourself, X Sense is a program that will help you for sure!
X Sense derives its concept from following authentic organic movement. As human beings, our species belongs to the category of four legged mammals. But now with our cars and chairs, we have left the natural way of sitting and walking way far behind us. X Sense makes us practice those primitive and natural ways of walking, sitting and moving. We work a lot with spirals and circles, which are also the most organic shapes of nature as well as the most powerful ones.
Authentic Movement Is The Key Point of Our Professional Contemporary Dance Course in Bangalore
Authentic movement is a way of moving that comes from within oneself in one’s full honesty and raw intention. In X Sense, a professional contemporary dance course in Bangalore, we encourage you to find your own way of moving within and outside of the class. Each of us has an intrinsic and natural way of moving which is unique. This class cherishes that individuality and will push you to preserve it. And it is much more of a movement class rather than a dance class. A movement class encourages you to move rather than dance, it will push you to be real and raw rather than mere aesthetic and glamorous. It will also help you tap into your feelings rather than just copy choreographies mindlessly.
Classes at FLUX are replete with intention, vigor and purpose. Here, we also talk a lot about the eyes and work with performers. However, the way of teaching is much more through the window of feelings rather than a meticulously structured thought or planning. These classes will also help you open up to your inner feelings and their interpretations. These feelings will make you move with your body, your soul and your mind rather than just with your muscles and your bones.
Form Vs Content
This is why at FLUX we reach the form of an art piece after we unravel the feeling. We first work with feelings and intentions and then decide what medium will be apt to tell this story. It is only after this that we start structuring it. In life too, we generally feel strongly for certain things and then feel scattered. But then we speak to people about our feelings and structure them with words culminating into a narrative. This is when we make a real sense with our narration. Similarly, at FLUX, we first feel and then create the form with the authenticity of our feelings.
Also since in X Sense, a professional contemporary dance course in Bangalore Indiranagar, we use release based technique to dance which is primarily movement of the spine, we also minimize effort by taking the fastest lane of communication to the brain. We also try and use our bones rather than our muscles, which increases efficiency. So once we learn how to move this way, we don’t get too tired. And then we can also apply these movements in life in simple actions like walking, sitting or getting up. This fun way of moving not only increases our body awareness but also helps us keep fitter and more conscious in everyday life.
Dance Vs Life
FLUX is a collaborative space that intends to create art for change. In a certain way, it means breaking the boundaries of stage, performance or structured ways of learning. In fact, the intention of any class at FLUX is trying to leak into the everyday understanding of life. This space is an ecosystem that inculcates a practice of questioning and thinking in whatever it teaches. Same way, X Sense, a professional contemporary dance course in Bangalore, is a way to understanding life a little better. FLUX too is an organism that breathes through the people who enter it. They take care of it and they nurture it. In return, it nurtures them with skills, feelings and art.
Importance of Love
We are constantly yearning to love, be loved and be accepted. FLUX is an open space that concentrates on practices of healing and love. It welcomes each and every person that walks through its door with open arms. Even X Sense classes are open to all and not merely limited to dancers alone. Art should reach, be available and accessible to everybody. That is what the purpose of art is. FLUX makes it possible with good listeners, affectionate feelers and practical thinkers who have joined together to bring about Art for Change.
