Professional Training with Ildikó Tóth

  • Mon 25.06.2018 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6,-, 10er-Karte € 35,-, Monatskarte € 50,-

This class draws from experiences with release-based and traditional modern dance techniques, from the work with contact as well as Forsythe improvisation methods and yoga. Class will begin with a simple warm-up on the floor or with improv exercises focusing on establishing a feeling for the center and the basic connections of the moving body as well as an efficient use of weight and breath. Class will continue with exercises at increasingly higher intensity and with an emphasis on an ever larger range of motion, clear and efficient transitions and an appropriate use of dynamic changes. The class culminates with a longer movement sequence meant to give room to apply technical discoveries that may have been made throughout the class while at the same time allowing for personal experiences in regards to space, the connection to fellow dancers and/or to the pure pleasure of moving. Falling and failure are highly encouraged.

Ildikó Tóth studied dance in education at Rotterdam Dance Academy in the Netherlands. After graduating, a DAAD scholarship led her to New York City in 2005 where she worked with Bill Young/Colleen Thomas & Company, Susan Marshall & Company as well as Kota Yamazaki among others. Since November 2012 she is a member of the Forsythe Company. She has taught for the department of education at Nederlands Dans Theater among others, and has been assisting Bill Young with staging new work for students at Barnard College in New York City.
