Professional Training

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.

Professional Training with Kristina Veit

  • Mon 02.09.2019 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6 | 10er-Karte € 35 | Monatskarte € 50

The class begins with a gentle warm-up combining breathing techniques and elements from aikido and yoga. The goal is to gradually set the physical body in motion, make it responsive to movement, as well as wake up the spirit and train the attentiveness of the mind. The next section includes combinations that gradually increase in tempo and dynamics and make use of intense floor work, as well as upright placement in space.
Alignment is the development of awareness for one’s own body, as well as for the space around us. This not merely gives us control over the body, which generally has to do with tension, but rather the steering of our own dance. Dynamic swift shifts are thus possible almost in the resting state of the mind and out of a maximum state of physical relaxation. The class is conceived as holistic training to help dancers get a good start into the rest of their working day.

Kristina Veit received her dance diploma from the Frankfurt University for Music and Performing Arts. After graduation, she left Germany and worked at various theaters in Austria and Switzerland with choreographers such as Robert Poole, Philipp Egli, Anna Huber and Rui Horta. She left the established venues, when she began making her own work and collaborated with companies such as Manopy in Denmark, Cobosmika in Barcelona, the Dance Festival Montevideo Sitiada in Uruguay and diverse other international choreographers. In 2009, she collaborated on the production of [fi:l], in Denmark as well as Mittendrinnen/PET_3 at Mousonturm. She has been studying yoga and Ayurveda intensely since 1997 and teaches both for professionals, as well as beginners. Currently, she is training to become a body-oriented psychotherapist.

Professional Training with Raimonda Gudaviciute

  • Mon 09.09.2019 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6 | 10er-Karte € 35 | Monatskarte € 50

The contemporary dance classes are based on floor work, sensation of light and heavy, push and pull principles. With these ideas we will enjoy different dynamic states. The observation of the condition of the own body, the rhythm of breathing and concentrating thoughts on being “here and now” is the main goal of the training.
The training is followed by exercises on the floor and dynamic phrases reaching out in the space with stimulation of lightness of the movement. Important elements are a vast usage of the spine and the center, the potential of gravity, timing and impulses, fast changes of directions of the body and space. An important aspect of the moving is the concentration on the connection between the center and different body parts. The aim is to increase knowledge of your own body, get rid of the movement patterns. It will be a great journey of fluent and round movement material, concentrating on the use of the space, as well as moving with focus and “attack feeling”.

Aura Dance Theater in Kaunas at the age of nine. She has been a member of Aura Dance Theater for a long time and performed in a great number of dance festivals and venues both in Lithuania and abroad. She has extended her education with a dance and acting degree in the Lithuanian Music and Theater Academy, where she graduated with a BA in 2007. Moreover, she participated in a student’s exchange program at the National Lyon Conservatory of Music and Dance in France. In 2009 she was a member of the TADaC´ 09 Company and successfully completed her master degree in contemporary dance at the Theatre Academy of Finland.
R. Gudaviciute is a freelancer teacher and teaches both professional, as well as beginners. She was teaching in Lithuania, Finland, Germany (K3 – Zentrum für Choreographie Hamburg) and Austria, where she was assisting Kerstin Kussmaul in the ImpulsTanz ’09 Vienna International Dance Festival.

Let’s arrive into a kinesthetic state: a state where movement choices follow sensorial feedback. Bringing together skills from improvisation with movement sequences, these classes are geared towards the professional dancer who is concerned with a detailed and haptic (felt) relationship to movement, over shape or form. We will work towards mapping kinesthetics through sensory expansion. We will challenge the agility and reflexes of our partners. We will create explosions and listen to them resonate. And we might do some movement phrases in a curious way.

Laura Hicks (1979) is a dancer, choreographer, and movement educator. She trained in Canada at the Toronto Ballet Ensemble, the Alberta Ballet, and the University of Calgary (UofC). Over the last ten years her work has focused substantially on improvisation and Somatics. Her study of anatomy in the department of Kinesiology at UofC, Bartineff Fundamentals, Franklin Technique, contact improvisation, biomechanics, and philosophy are strong influences. She is a teacher in demand at contact improvisation festivals throughout Europe, is involved in a three year project in Paris in the study of ‘intersubjectivity’ in joint improvisation (Project ICI), and was awarded the HTA Postgraduate Alumni Research Grant for her own project in ‘Kinesthetic Mapping’ in 2016. As a choreographer she works with Hannah Shakti Bühler. She is a fully certified trainer of the Pilates Method, and holds an MA in Contemporary Dance Education from the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts.

For his contemporary training, Michael Langeneckert draws from 30 years of experience as a professional dancer, choreographer and head trainer. His classes combine release technique, bodywork, improvisation and conditioning. The floor work technique is preceded by warming-up the body on multiple levels. This then advances into defined variations. The focus then shifts to the development of physical intensity and complex movement sequences in space. Central element of the training is the continuous flow of movement and building a connection to beats and energetic sounds, which support the physical body. This is a technical dance training oriented on current tendencies in contemporary dance.

Michael Langeneckert works as a rehearsal director at the Staatstheater Mainz since 2015. He received his training as a dancer in Freiburg and has since worked as a freelancer both at multiple municipal and state theatres in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. He most recently worked with choreographers such as e.g. Sharon Eyal, Johannes Wieland, Club Guy and Roni, Guy Nader and Maria Campos, Koen Augustijnen, Garry Stewart. In Freiburg, he directed his own independent dance company Rebound Prod from 2001 until 2007. He choreographed numerous pieces for his company and was also guest choreographer at various theatres in different formats. As a teacher for contemporary dance, he has taught theatre companies across Germany, at independent centres such as the Tanzhaus NRW Düsseldorf, Marameo Berlin, K3 Hamburg as well as in Holland, Austria, Hungary and Switzerland.

Gabrielle Staiger’s class was originally designed as preparation for creative processes and aims at activating the „democratic body“ (a body capable of initiating movement from every part or surface of the body). The class begins on the floor, focusing on the spine and then becomes increasingly complex and technically demanding. A technical, kinetic and literally moving experience.

Gabrielle Staiger, freelance choreographer and teacher for contemporary dance technique, composition and Labanprinciples is a teacher very much in demand with leading dance companies like Ballet Preljocaj/Aix-en-Provence, Neuer Tanz/Düsseldorf, Ultima Vez/Brussels, Ballet de Marseille as well as leading education centres in Europe and overseas such as the Hogeschool vor de Kunsten in Amsterdam, the Rotterdamse Dansakademie and SungKyunKwan University in Seoul. For 12 years she directed ARAZZO Tanztheater, a Physical Theatre Company based in Cologne. Her artistic work has won numerous awards. She was educated at the Laban Centre in London and the German College of Physical Education in Cologne.
