Dancing means showing yourself, being seen, and often also being judged (whether you asked for it or not). In 2018 there is much discussion of whether or not to give grades, about writing self-assessments and about ways of giving feedback as a coach. How can teachers communicate in a way that motivates their students, so that they don’t think in terms of right or wrong but rather feel enthusiastic about exploring further and making their own choices? How can you support their creative process constructively as a mentor and moderator? Caroline D’Haese’s work is based on the observation and feedback methods of Anna Halprin (USA), the Das Arts Research School (NL) and educational principles of educating without rewards and punishments.
Caroline D’Haese studied contemporary dance at the London Contemporary Dance School, the California Institute of the Arts and the Hoger Instituut voor Dans. Through the years, she has built up a kaleidoscopic career as a dancer, maker, coach and mentor. She regularly attends extra training with artists such as Steve Paxton, Jérôme Bel, Julyen Hamilton and Chrysa Parkinson.
This workshop consists of two sessions of two hours.
