The classes of modern dance at CREA are based on a mixture of different movements within modern dance. You will be using the Limón technique, among others.
In her teaching practice, Sandra combines set material based on principles of flow, momentum and floor work with guided improvisation and creative investigation. Sandra encourages students to follow their artistic interests while discovering different approaches to modern dance technique. She is curious about deepening individual dance practice by sensory alertness, corporeal theatricality and athletism. In this class students will gradually grow towards combining improvised tasks with specific movement exercises.
The next subjects are at the forefront of Bart’s classes: floorwork, relaxation, dynamics, jumping capability, turning, use of space and body language. These aspects are processed using technical exercises and combinations of dances. The class moves from the ground to challenging turning-exercises in the middle of the floor, to executing large, physical jumps across the diagonal to compelling rhythms.
If you have acquired a taste for Modern Dance, you may wish to enroll for Modern III again, continue the course of IV or take part in the choreography project in spring.
