Momentum in space

The warm-up routine combines elements from both ashtanga yoga and tae kwon do. It consists of a gradual progression of movements, including circular motions, which help to absorb and regenerate energy in space. Through improvisational exercises involving vertical and horizontal body movements, participants improve their overall body awareness. This increased body consciousness is then applied to improvisational exercises that explore space using the four elements of nature - fire, water, earth, and wind. Subsequently, participants will engage in training that focuses on acrobatic skills, floorwork techniques, tae kwon do, and traditional Korean dance movements. Throughout these activities, emphasis is placed on maintaining proper center of gravity control. Each movement is carefully arranged to allow for different choreographies of varying tempos and genres, reflecting the unique style and characteristics of choreographer Hoyoung Im. The main objective of this class is to enhance the participants' physical capabilities, effectively guiding their movement in space, while incorporating the philosophy and distinctive energy of Hoyoung Im.

Tilting the group signifies the core of this group, a combination modern music, videography, and technology to create new action / movement and trends. Umzikssi aims to collaborate with various other genres, rather than sticking to the traditional form of performance. Umzikssi strives to create by mixing analogue and digital with sharp theatrical questions.
