In this course you will improve flexibility in order to get better splits and a more bendy back and we will teach how to do it avoiding afterwork pain and preventing injuries. 

Structure

We will loosen up your joints with soft moves and smooth stretching at the sound of music and will be working  the abductors and box splits and hip flexor and side splits. We will show you techniques to use areas of the back that the dancers don't normally use when they bend and that will help a lot to improve flexibility and prevent lower back pain an injuries. Individually in bridge, forearm bridge or chest stand according with the level of each individual student. 

ANDROMEDA BIO

Graduated in Physical Education at Las Palmas de Gran Canaria & Barcelona University in 2007.

Andromeda started theatre classes as a child and in his teenage years began Ballet, Contemporary and Modern dance, which he studied for 10 years. Beginning Circus practice for a street play in 1999, his first skill was Stilts. Following that he started learning fire, which has become one of his main skills to perform and teach.

In 2006 he started learning aerial silks and when he moved to the UK in 2008 he mastered his aerial skills in Net. He also developed other skills that he also performs and teaches: hoop, rope, web and straps. In 2012 he started taking contortion classes with Iona Luvsandorj (Guiness Record Winner) to improve his flexibility, but his enthusiasm and focus soon took him to a performance standard and now he is performing this skill around the world.

These days Andromeda performs worldwide at a huge variety of venues and events. (VIP ROOM Paris, MANSION Miami, M1NT shanghai, CIRQUE LE SOIR Dubai, Cannes Film Festival, Isle of MTV Malta, Milan Fashion Week, European Gay Sky Week...)

Andromeda began teaching in 2000 as an Activities Leader at camps in Spain. In 2006 he started teaching dance in Valsequillo de Gran Canaria Dance and Music Council School.

23 January 2018 • CONTORTION 6 WEEK COURSE

The location is great. 15 minutes walk from central station. The class itself is amazing. Andrew is a good contortionist in many way. He is funny, kind, knowledgeable , cute(sometimes), strong and fit. I have no injury since start the contortion class 3 months ago and my old injury also recovered during these time. Taking contortion class does not mean I want to be contortionist one day. It is just training to get healthier and stronger in the same time.
