Klein Technique™ Stretch and Placement

with A de la Fe

BOOK NOW


In the Stretch and Placement classes, we will work slowly, thoughtfully and deliberately; we will work in order to find and improve the body’s connections on the level of the bone; and we will learn to use the deep muscles of postural support (the psoas, the hamstrings, the external hip rotators and the pelvic floor) to integrate our bodies and improve our dynamic posture thus finding more effective ways of moving, dancing and choreographing.

“The purpose of Klein Technique™ is education, not on the superficial level of mimicking form, but on a profoundly deep level of understanding the full use of the body as an integral whole to maximize full function of each individual’s unique movement potential. Working from the bones allows one to work from their unique identity, to dance and choreograph from their unique essential self.” (Susan Klein, 2018)

The best way to understand what is Klein Technique™ is to experience it first hand. If you’d like to read more about it you can check what Susan Klein says about the technique at the Klein Technique™ website.
