The Tanzplattform Rhein-Main offers various weekend workshops by internationally renowned teachers such as Frey Faust, Jeremy Wade, Candoco Dance Company and Susanne Bentley. Some courses are exclusively for professional dancers, others are also open for people without prior dance training. The various technical and somatic methods as well as the artistic approaches, featured in the workshops, help hone physical experience, open up new perspectives on movement analysis and embodiment and demonstrate creative possibilities for developing one’s own choreographic or performance practice.

Frey Faust is a veteran of the New York contemporary dance scene. In the late 90’s he developed an interdisciplinary movement analysis system. “The Axis Syllabus” system designates different parts of the body as “motors” and explores their potential for energy creation. The AS recognizes both broad general commonalities as well as unique individual qualities and proportions, and invites the student to work with rather than against their body’s resources.
In his workshop, Frey Faust invites the participants to practice for example the kinetic energy transfer from one body part to the other, practice joint centration and dynamic alignment, explore various options for optimal articular motion and turn physics to their favour for both large and small scale movements. The workshop addresses participants who have already gained basic experience in dance and movement techniques.
