Yes
If anything, what did you not like about the venue?

It is a bit small.
Any suggestions for future events?

There could be more discussion of solo improvisations.

It doesn't seem like much, but this type of feed back is great!  Now we know that some of you guys want more discussion about the work that happens during Labs!

Sadly, we can't do much for the size of the space.

LEIMAY LUDUS COMMUNITY CLASS FEEDBACK SEPTEMBER 2014

What has been the most beneficial thing about taking Community Class?

Increased energy post-class. I feel like my brain is more awake. It's also a really positive feeling to be in a non-judgemental space like that class - inclusive of all body types and skill levels.

What aspect of the classes do you dislike or think needs more explanation/improvement?

It was less a matter of explanation or improvement but I am slightly uncomfortable interacting with other members of the class. In the first class I went to, we were partnered up with another person to convey movement through sound. It was probably just my own personal hang ups, and I know it's good to push through challenges like that, but I do prefer un-partnered exercises.

What are some of your favorite exercises from class?

This last class where we were a lot of different animals was really fun. I also like the warm ups where we are pounding on parts of our bodies.

I work with Andrea!

LEIMAY LUDUS COMMUNITY CLASS FEEDBACK SEPTEMBER 2014

What has been the most beneficial thing about taking Community Class?

Getting back in touch with my body in a non judgmental way

Learning new ways of moving and dancing

Meeting and dancing with new people

2 hours is a great length 

Perfect location for me to bike from work, it is exactly half way home. When I ride the subway again in the winter this might be an issue. 

What aspect of the classes do you dislike or think needs more explanation/improvement?

I really enjoy the class and there is not much I dislike or feel like could improve. I think some more challenging exercises peppered in might be nice, but not necessary. I have been to the class twice (unfortunately my schedule is unreliable and sometimes I cannot leave work in time to get to class) and a few exercises were repeated but many of them were brand new. I like to repeat exercises from previous classes AND learn new ones. Maybe repeating more exercises from the past could be better to give a more familiar feeling to the class. But again, not necessary. Class is really really great! I'm so happy to have found you and sorry I can't come more often.

What are some of your favorite exercises from class?

I've enjoyed doing most of the exercises, the one that stands out as one of my favorite was rolling on the ground with the hip initiation while the rest of the body remains released. This was particularly challenging for me and I liked the opportunity to learn something new that I could work on and try to master.

What has been the most beneficial thing about taking Community Class?

feeling blessed for having access to good movement classes for a lower price to have both recurring exercises along the weeks and new ones every time to use some of the exercises to release muscular tension outside the class

What are some of your favorite exercises from class?

visualisation, improv at the end, image work. It's also fun when there's a theme that's making a link in between exercises along the class, it feeds my imagination when I do them.

How did you hear about LEIMAY Ludus Community Class?

I took workshop at Leimay

What has been the most beneficial thing about taking Community Class?

I enjoy the good body feelings, especially the freedom of the arm work.

What aspect of the classes do you dislike or think needs more explanation/improvement?

The one class I attended was very popular--great for you; difficult to navigate for me. I felt like I could not take the space my body requires without entering someone else's space. This becomes more important with such a  large percentage of non-dancers in the room--people whose awareness of their space is still in its early stages.

What are some of your favorite exercises from class?

Upper body business! All the flinging and swinging.

How did you hear about LEIMAY Ludus Community Class?

I think it was somewhere on facebook--"attend this class to be considered for this community performance opportunity". I did not end up deciding to continue with the performance opportunity, but I will come back to class sometime.

What has been the most beneficial thing about taking Community Class?

The accessibility to someone without a dance background.  

What aspect of the classes do you dislike or think needs more explanation/improvement?

Nothing! it' s great.  I wish my schedule allowed me to come more frequently than I do.

What are some of your favorite exercises from class?

Anything involving bouncing, particularly the one where you trick a foot into kicking your own arse.

How did you hear about LEIMAY Ludus Community Class?

Attended performance at BAM and got on email list.

What has been the most beneficial thing about taking Community Class?

I confirmed how important it is the image and sensation (using the literality of this concepts) to build any movement.

I had a new spectrum of how I can approach to my work and in my collaborations;  using others elements (mythology, pictures, paintings, in general using different searches to build the material).

Using different searches to create, helps me to open the possibilities and do not be afraid of being stuck in my creative process. Instead of being overwhelmed about how much medias I have in front of me, I can divide them and use them in order to create.

Receive feed back and explanations of the work from others members of the class, helps you to increase the understanding of the process and the movement per se, because everyone has a different way to think. 

I confirmed that I need to have more training. 

What aspect of the classes do you dislike or think needs more explanation/improvement?

Honestly, I've been more worried about how I can have more physical training. 

I loved when we have explanations from other members of the class - rehearsal. Ximena and Andrea showed a very open forum to share experiences in the room, that I really appreciated it. 

What are some of your favorite exercises from class?

All the exercises that were explaining using the imagery.

How did you hear about LEIMAY Ludus Community Class?

Years ago... a collaborator and friend, suggested me to take classes and go to watch your work.
