Class Description
My class is a holistic fusion of guided improvisation, contemporary technique and choreography. I play with images and concepts to inspire new approaches to technique and the growth of new sensations and movement qualities. I also integrate my experience as a Health Coach into my classes with the aim of providing dancers with supportive tools to help them navigate both their bodies and the dance world in healthy ways such as deepening self-trust and pushing physical/mental boundaries while maintaining self-care. My class is very playful, creative and physical. I can promise you a nice sweat and a great playlist!
In the choreography section of this week of classes, I will be teaching material from my new solo work-in-progress, “These words before all else.”

Exploring the gravitational relationships
How do our bodies respond to gravity? How does gravity influence our movements? Our starting
point is the warm up through which we focus on sensing, listening and scanning our bodies.
Following this inner exploration, we will then work with the aspect of weight and its relation to the
ground. Using this information, our attention will later shift towards the outside by navigating and
transporting our movements into space. Improvisation tasks, set material and movement games will
deepen our research with the aim to discover movement tools (momentum, suspension) and various
movement qualities (swings, falls and drops, pushes and pulls). Composition and feedback
processes will complete our dance journey.

Biography
Ioulia Kokkokiou is a performer and dance pedagogue based in Frankfurt am Main. She
completed her Master in Contemporary Dance Education (MA CoDE Frankfurt Am Main). As
a dance facilitator, she collaborates with various dance, social and cultural institutions
(Nachbarschafthaus-Wiesbaden, Link n Learn and Volkhochschule Frankfurt Am Main) and in
2018 she taught with Eleonora Siarava the professional training in E-Werk (Freiburg im
Breisgau). In 2021, she facilitated with Matthew Tusa the project “Das Spiel mit Bewegung”
that took place in the Haus der Kinder (Wiesbaden) and was founded by Chance Tanz. In her
teaching, Ioulia draws inspiration from different artistic mediums, philosophy and science
and her main educational goal is the cultivation of body, movement, and group awareness.
Her latest movement and pedagogical research, founded by DIS-TANZ SOLO, investigates
how movement games support the transmission of contemporary dance.
