This course aims to introduce the basic elements of contemporary dance and movement fundamentals while encouraging the pleasure of moving and dancing.
We will work on join mobility, muscle tone, flexibility, general coordination, the use of space, rhythm, time, weight/gravity. We will introduce the basic vocabulary of contemporary dance: travelling through space, weight changes, turns, jumps, spirals, swings, slides, rolls, falls, etc. All that will be worked through exercises, movement sequences and simple explorations. We will combine the dynamic and energetic work with the work of listening and body awareness of calm rhythm. As a whole we will learn the dance basis, increasing our movement possibilities, sensitivity and agility.
