Tanzklub Frankfurt “You can dance at any age”

Led by Petra Lehr

Contemporary dance in particular, with its different approaches and forms of expression, is an excellent way to connect with the respective movement abilities of each individual participant. We start by warming up the muscles and mobilising the joints, improve our awareness of the body and allow ourselves to experience the range of our movement possibilities. Together, we develop movement sequences on the topics of coordination, dynamics and rhythm.
In this club, we will deal with whether these last one and a half years, the virus, the pandemic have changed us, and if so, how. How much intimacy is possible, how much distance is necessary? How much contact can be established through distance? And if you are absolutely not in the mood for this topic anymore, I will also be happy to be inspired by your ideas :-)

TEACHER
Petra Lehr received her education in Germany and the USA (including Leonard Pitt School of Mime and Masktheater, Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance, Alvin Ailey American Dance Center). From the very beginning, she concerned herself with the equal interaction of dance, theater and music. She continued her education in Physical Theater with Matt Mittler (New York). She has been influenced by her many years of musical collaboration with the singer and interpreter of New Music Christina Ascher (New York). After several solo works and works with musicians and visual artists, she founded the Co.Lab.TanzTheater in Frankfurt in 1993, with which she has already worked on 18 productions. She teaches contemporary dance and dance theater, lectures at various universities, leads projects in schools and is active in teacher training. She has also been a Pilate coach since 2006 and in 2012 received the dance medicine certificate.
