Contemporary dance for women and men over 25 years
You can dance at any age: contemporary dance with its different approaches and expressions particularly provides good conditions to connect to the respective movement skills of the participants.
Different approaches to movement are explored to expand the individual spectrum of movement and expression. It is important that movement is not imitated but experienced. The work with tension / relaxation, impulse, contact, dynamics, rhythm and perception of space form the main focus of the course.
No previous knowledge required. Please bring comfortable training clothes and socks!
