Kurs with Selina Shida Hack

Reinventing & Recycling
Dancers will have the opportunity to research movement techniques and tasks to strengthen the bond between the spontaneous dancer and the logical dancer. Working with various improvisation tasks to recycle and reinvent movement to help us with executing the phrase later on in the class. Like tasks done to create choreography, dancers will investigate negative space, symmetry, framing, repetition, and pattern. The goal of this class is for the dancer participating to scan, develop, and acknowledge the freedom and limits within the body and to enjoy all that is possible.
