14 B / Exploring Contemporary Techniques & Ideas
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2014/15
Intermediates will focus on exploring new somatic pathways as well as strengthening awareness and manipulation of energy throughout the spine. All the while maintaining a strong connection to the floor. This allows the dancer to work on expanding one’s range while creating freeness within the body to reveal a deeper physical clarity. These are coupled with uses of dynamics, intention and a relationship to space and sound. Together this creates an environment for the dancer to experience only the “now” and it’s relation to the physical form.
