Professional training

- now on site again!

From June 2020 the open morning classes can take place on site again in compliance with the hygiene rules. To ensure that there is enough space, the professional training will take place at the Frankfurt LAB for the moment.

The open morning classes are directed at professional dance makers (dancers, choreographers, dance pedagogues and dance students). The professional training classes are taught by local and international teachers, alternating on a weekly basis. The range of different styles and techniques is extensive, while the main focus lies on contemporary dance.

The training is for professional dancers and dance students (with corresponding proof)

  • Einzelkarte € 6 | 10er-Karte € 35 | Monatskarte € 50

About the class
Cyril Baldy’s workshop focus on physical sensations, awareness and organisation, to offer a versatile body focused on its materiality, the stuff it is made of. How do bodies, from the point of view of their materiality compose themselves in a dance compare to more familiar ways, such as those centered around imprinting movement from a single point of external authority. Movement, mobility and organisation (not only of the body) will be exercised. Following a simple displacement — movement, body-sensation, change— the class will aim to carry out and redistribute form not as a stylistic exercise but as form of being in the world, with the world and organise the consequences of it own emergence/becoming. It will be a quest toward a movement of subjective perceptual experience. What begins as physical perception returns to affect the structures that governs individuality. What if there were no one direction?
