The Fluid class series was started by The Kha Foundation early in 2016, with the aim of making daily contemporary movement classes accessible to practicing dancers and teachers in Bangalore. In these open classes, physical training is emphasised, so that people in the dance scene can move together and work their bodies regularly. Teachers in the series rotate, so that students can take advantage of the amazing diversity of experience and techniques available.
In 2017, Fluid will have a slightly different structure, catering to professional dancers and beginners/dancers with less experience. Teachers will lead classes for a week at a time--classes during the week will be for professional/working/trained dancers and dance teachers, and on weekends, they will be open to all. While the focus will remain on contemporary dance, Flexible Fridays will be open to other forms, such as Ballet, Seraikella Chhau, Hip Hop, Kalarippayattu, Bharatanatyam and more.
Regular physical training is essential for performers and teachers, so that they can continue to build on kinaesthetic awareness, proprioception, and increase their flexibility and strength everyday. Practising everyday increases the scope of possibility in movement and thought. The open class culture that is prevalent in other countries is still growing in India, and the Fluid series is an excellent resource for professionals and aspiring dancers.
