Classical meets modern dance!
Classical X Modern Dance is a course for students who have followed classical or modern dance classes for 2 to 3 years. From tight to loose, from collaboration to solo, from studying a choreography to creating it yourself or together. A week in which you will discover where your strengths lie!
Cleo will take you by the hand and give you tips on how to learn, perform and remember the movements the easiest way. You learn to let go of the tight shapes you learn in classical ballet class while learning modern/classical choreographies from Israel. You work on duets, group combinations, improvisations and solos.
During the week you will create a choreography together in which your favourite rehearsed combinations are incorporated. This could be a duet, a group slow motion sequence, a solo or a unison combination. At the end of the week you will present a part of the choreography you have learned. You learn how to work together, how to make the movements your own and how to prepare for a performance.
What will we be doing?
Each day starts with a ballet class, a short Pilates class or a modern dance class to build strength and loosen up. During the moments of rest, you will be inspired by looking at images of various choreographies or interviews with choreographers. After lunch you will start studying movement phrases, short choreographies and putting together the final composed choreography.
In short, an intensive week with a lot of fun and a physical challenge!
