Contemporary dance workshop Easter Week 2018.

THE PLEASURE OF DANCING HERE AND NOW

When dancing there is no possibility to hide…

Dance is an emotional and aesthetic experience, where thought and feeling come together.

Contemporary Dance, as I envision it, is organic movement and pleasure which occurs when we are fully aware of the present moment.

As an evolution of more classical forms, contemporary dance grows out of the urge to express and recount personal or historical events, social changes, deep inner feelings, complaints, moments of satisfaction and existential unrest of the human being. Graham, Cuninngham, Limón and many more made all this possible. Today contemporary dance gathers movements form all dance styles of the world and incorporates elements from yoga, martial arts, mindfulness, feldenkrais, breakdance, contact improvisation, spurring creativity and leading to ever higher levels of perfection.

In this workshop you will have the opportunity to explore and improve your technique, but also to discover what contemporary dance is and how it can benefit you. You will have the chance to get to know yourself better, since much of the dance technique helps you to liberate the subconscious mind.

Talent without technique is never going to bring forth the magic and creativity within
  • Avoid to just mechanically execute moves.
