Company: Art of Spectra
Age: for ages 16 years and adults
Duration: 90 min
The workshop starts with a warm-up where the participants try out balance, strength, flexibility, movements. After this, Art of Spectra presents a shorter choreography, followed by a conversation about what we’ve just seen and about dance. After this the participants try out the contemporary dance style of Art of Spectra and learn a shorter choreography. Since the style is closely connected to that of breakdance, we try out various aspects from street dance and give a brief historic background about street and breakdance. After the break the participants get suggestions on how to create their movements and how to out these together into a choreography.
