Diego de la Rosa’s classes are very physical and dynamic. The idea is to begin the class with improvisation, mixing mobility and strength, using workouts and games to warm up while bringing us awareness into our own body. Focus in different body parts during the whole class we will be able to isolate and get a better understanding on how to use our body. Followed by technical diagonals, the body is used with the goal of getting more possibilities in movement and mobility. Using several floorwork elements we will study different ways of how approaching new ways of using the floor. In general, the sequences are mainly inspired by movements from urban dance, contemporary and classical techniques but also by

acrobatics and release techniques. Diego never hesitates to add his own style and to use material that he personally works and also with his company „Frantics“. His biggest interest during his class is to enable people to be creative and be able to add their own personality into the movements, to keep researching and finding new ways, involving their emotions and feelings into the work.
