“To me, dance is a primal urge.”
About the workshop
The program prepares the body to be receptive to unfamiliar movements. An important element of the training program is the development of a mindset of inquiry, leading to alternative ways of thinking and exploring.
The program is directed towards a system that combines barre and center exercises with moving through space. This class structure will be mixed with improvisational tasks, composition, partnering and choreography. The exercises are based on diverse movement techniques such as capoeira, b-boying (breakdance), martial arts, gymnastics and various contemporary dance techniques. The class uses movement material of different origins such as African dance, jazz, urban dance and modern styles such as Limon.
