Four Elements Of Movement
All movement is simplified into four elements, the most basic building blocks. The Four Elements are Horizontal, Vertical, Tilt, and Left or Right Rotation.
Master the four elements as your foundation to naturally express all forms of movement. The better you move, the better you dance.
Practice these exercises indefinitely. Feel good and have fun with them!
Horizontal is the 1st element of movement, moving intentionally through space in parallel relation to the earth.
Vertical is the 2nd element, moving up or down through space. Tilt is the 3rd element, rotating in space like a teeter-totter, your lower half goes in the opposite direction of your upper half.
Left/Right Rotation is the 4th and last element of movement. You rotate like a swivel, left or right.
To achieve fluidity, synergize all four elements into each move. Fluid movement feels best and is the most articulated. It is the pinnacle of movement.
