Feeling groove in the body and letting it flow in movement, discovering and playfully challenging the movement dimensions of your own body, taking the space as a stage. This contemporary dance workshop invites all interested people from the age of 18 to get to know elements of contemporary dance.We get to know our own spectrum of movement and find our own ways to dance with the body, its possibilities and the principles presented. We consciously play with rhythm, groove and dynamics in movement and thus discover different movement qualities in the body. Groove here means not only the influence of music, but also the body's own inner groove that sits in our joints.In the course of the workshop we venture into dance dialogue with other participants and the space, our dancing body develops more and more ideas. At the end of each workshop day, the dance studio becomes the stage: a simple movement task allows us to enter into a spontaneous choreography - filled with our favorite discoveries of the workshop.Now or never - awaken the dancer in you!This is a dance offering for mixed ability groups and invites all people to join in - no matter what their physical abilities or previous experience.


"Body Grooves" in easy language
The workshop is called "Body Grooves" . In the workshop you learn about contemporary dance. All people from the age of 18 can participate. The workshop is for everyone - no matter what physical requirements. It is okay if you have not danced much before.
In the workshop you get to know your body better. What can the body do? How can the body move to the music? We dance individually and together. At the end of the workshop everyone can show what they have learned.
