About Stephanie's contemporary dance classes 

Class warm ups are structured to awaken the body precisely and globally through a gradual flow, eventually leading the body to disassociate and isolate during accelerated movement. Travelling diagonals, jumps and turns are often included in the exercises that follow. Classes either end with a choreographic combination that varies in complexity or an explorative session and outlook on partnering.

In constant motion, minuscule, even when frozen, for Stephanie Decourteille, bodies explore oppositions. Between tension and release, between elongation and compression, the dynamic of mixing and sorting the body’s adventures is omnipresent. She believes each dancer possesses a connection to their center of gravity located around their belly button. This theory leads young choreographers to challenge their center by constantly moving it throughout the entire body where one can discover new sensations, new movements and textures of movement that have not yet been tamed.

 

Stephanie Decourteille conducts her research through a complex development of an evident ease with execution. Facing the challenges of our body’s daily movements, surpassing what is only natural all the while transforming this new “unnatural” movement into something that is yet very nature.
