BODY AWARENESS DANCE & DANCE COMPOSITION
BODY AWARENESS DANCE
Body Awareness Dance classes are composed of Experiential Anatomy, Body Mind Centering, Authentic Movement and Body Work elements. Through these techniques we are discovering the miracle of our bodies and enjoy free dance.
Through “Body Awareness Dance” new connections are appearing in the body which are facilitating the development of our coordination and technical knowledge. We can find several new qualities in a body-topic that is enriching our movement culture. We are elaborating the material in free improvisation, which helps us to integrate our experiences in our dance.
This kind of work gives space for a deep connection with our partners, which is also an important aspect in a long term work in a group.
During the classes we experiment with compositional methods, try different creative strategies, making solos, duets, and group choreographies. During the process (learning from each other and teaching each other), usually starting from some improvisation, we look for the answers to the following questions:
how do I make decisions in the creative process?
what are my personal preferences for the following?
- use of space
- quality of movement
- use of body
- rhythm, speed, dynamics
- theme selection, feelings, story, editing
what inspires me?
During the work, we look at the emerging material with unbiased eyes, and by using various tools (narration, intervention, etc.), we help the formation and strengthening of perspicacity.
