Raw Movement Lab Class
John J Zullo Dance/Raw Movement
My interests in teaching contemporary modern techniques includes encouraging students to explore the movement elements that I focus on in my work, the initiation of movement using unexpected parts of the body, sequential flow and connection, the contrast of stillness/explosion, and finding the ease of movement through the body while strengthening the core. I believe in challenging one’s body to go to extremes of balance while maintaining control, the importance of breath and weight while playing with gravity and momentum and the use of the floor. I also like to focus on spatial awareness and the performance gaze to enhance ones artistry in performance while challenging students to do dynamic and theatrical movement with complete use of their tools. Use of improvisational methods are added into the class structure to stimulate creativity and foster the unexpected.
