10:30 - 12:30 HAZA AHELI *Waves and Layers of Fluidity
Through fluid movement we can enter into a trance where we embody liquid; where water is in constant movement through our cells. This movement in turn flows through the entire body and fluidity takes on a new dimension!
Through exercises, dance moves, a short choreography and attentive guidance, this workshop promises to be magical and aquatic.
Arm combinations and shapes
Wave techniques and flexibility
Breathing and playing with speed of movement
We’ll also contemplate the energy and intention you put into your movement. Combining this with your new skills of fluidity will help you evolve to be a more graceful and creative dancer.
13:00 - 15:00 MANCA PAVLI * Secrets of turns & spicy layered moves
Manca has gathered her 19 years of teaching experience to tell you the secrets of graceful and powerful spins and turns. They are the secret sauce of dance! But when not done in alignment, they can become a messy chaos! We’ll play with some components of alignment that Manca finds the most useful and she will present visualisations which are simple to understand.
We will also explore the art of layering and learn the art of structuring movement architecture. Instead of just learning choreography, you will get a sneak-peak into Manca’s creative process and tools that she uses when creating new material.
15:30 - 17:30 VIOLET SCRAP * Connecting the dots
Our dance, like any other dance, has its specific way of separating body parts: for technique, isolation and layering we work hard to disconnect every piece of our body and control it separately. But at what cost? This workshop is an attempt to play with the opposite idea: how to bring the body back to move holistically, and how connection serves us as much as isolation does.
