DANCE PARTNERING PRACTICE
19 - 21 augusti 2022
In this class, we practice a wide range of physical mental abilities, through moving with other people.
Dynamical guiding the group through the class setting, we focus mainly on aspects of weight sharing, leading/following/listening, and the importance of footwork and floor connection for balance and availability. We will insist on practicing specific approaches and techniques/mechanics, in order to achieve more freedom and possibilities in the improvisations, where the dances happen.
The workshop is a collaboration between Dansalliansen and Danscentrum Väst
