Explore your body according to the principles of urban dance, clubbing, hip-hop and waacking*. These styles not only require complex coordination, lots of musicality, dissociation and rhythm, but also include deeper concepts such as self-expression, identity, character and storytelling with your body. All these elements come in handy in any dance style to make your performance and your presence extra powerful. So bounce on those beats and search for your inner groove!
The workshop is very open in structure and slowly builds up in different parts. There is time and space for technical exercises, contextualization, improvisation and self-exploration. You will learn to translate the basic principles of urban dance styles to your own movement language and way of composing.
