Erik Eriksson SE

Erik Eriksson is a dancer, teacher and choreographer. He completed his artistic education at P.A.R.T.S (Training and Research cycles, 2010-2014) and is currently working with Daniel Linehan, Krišjanis Sants, Ieva Gaurilčkaite, Krista Burane, Andy Field and Linn Eriksson. He teaches at Copenhagen School of Contemporary Dance, P.A.R.T.S and SEAD.

Starting with careful analysis of a set of basic movement patterns common to many systems of physical training – squats, push and pull-ups - Erik´s teaching explores what it takes for an abled human body to move in space and time: endurance, stamina, strength, mobility, power, speed, coordination, agility, accuracy and balance. How these capacities affect the way a body responds to environmental loads and what are the consequent adaptations. It aims at providing a rational framework of general movement principles that can be practically applied to any specific situation or experience a dancer may encounter. Principles that also can be used as tools for structuring a physical practice, relevant for dancers and their personal goals.
