Somatic principles develop a strong physical foundation, dynamic adaptability and an improvement of technical skills, versatility and proprioception.
 
A regular somatic practice is helpful in prevention and rehabilitation of injuries and improvement in alignment. A great class for any level to complement your regular dance practice.

This class is pitched at a more advanced level however with all MAP classses, this is inclusive to all people with adaptable movement options. This is a physical and technical class. "Within my classes I am interested in the importance of contemporary technique while allowing the dancers to express their movement through musicality and flow. My aim is to give the dancers a permit to express individual ways of moving while utilising their body in a strong efficient way". Issy Randall
