Class description: Having a deep appreciation and passion for the craft of retransmission, Jill offers a dance class that allows the mover to warm up their body, their self-awareness in space and to surpass themself. The class is based on improvisation, the use of different techniques and structured exercises. Working on the JC movement, a personalised choreography signature, the class allows you to discover some knowledge of it while keeping the importance of individuality. Within a safe and shared practice environment, the class of Jill Crovisier stands for inclusion, diversity and exchange.
