In the frame of Winter Tanz 2016/17
Jean-Hugues’ classes are based on the Limón technique, with contemporary influence of release-based floorwork and elements of traditional African Dance, allowing for organic choreographies of fluidity and expression. They fill the space with sensation, imagination, musicality and changing dynamics. For the first time accompanied by live music, this year’s workshop will focus particularly on the aspect of muscality throughout the phrases and the teaching.
