Thomas E.S. Kelly's masterclasses are a fusion of Aboriginal Australian motifs combined with contemporary. His style also features elements of hip hop, physical percussion, gestures and vocal sounds. The class focuses on the Indigenous Australian connection to the environment around them. A very grounded feel through the soles of your feet stimulates your spiritual and physical connection to mother earth while playing with lengthy drawn out movement to instantly change to rapid fire gestures to mimic the ever changing natural elements around them. An emphasis on breath is explored and manipulated through out the class as we will utilise our voices and certain traditional chants and calls as accents during the class. All this while using rhythms from his culture fused into the technique to inform movement patterns in his Contemporary Indigenous style.
