h 19:30 21.00 Rhythmic tuning, exercises to connect to the beat and become used to finding the ‘1’  by Gudrun Herold (online+in presence)  
€ 40,00

Do you struggle to find orientation in music? In this workshop we will explore different approaches and exercises to help you find the “1”, using techniques like Rhythmic Tuning and Body Percussion as playful, yet effective tools. We will build from simple rhythms and percussive music (for example drum solos) to more complex pieces, so that you will (hopefully) leave this class feeling less overwhelmed, knowing where to start when you get lost.

 h 11.00 – 13.00 Different bodies same shapes w/ Calaneya Company – (online+in presence)   OPEN Level

Dani and Elena are often asked how they manage to be so in sync with each other while having two completely different body types.
In this workshop, they will share their techniques and strategies on how to achieve this almost symbiotic connection in FCBD(R)Style improv.
Using a mixture of dance theater exercises to sharpen your vision for shapes and connecting elements in general as well as effective technique drills to improve the exactness of your FCBD(R) steps, Dani and Elena will help you get one step closer to the perfect harmony and connection with your dance partners.

€ 60,00

Devi Mamk has created some amazing, beautiful steps that can be used in connection with our FCBD Style vocabulary. Her steps, however, are very detailed and complex. In this workshop I will share with you some of Devi’s more recent steps, both slow and fast, give you a detailed breakdown and suggestions on how to learn and practice them. We will then find ways to not feel overwhelmed when we build them into our dance – both you and the audience – finding balance, tension and release in your movements, and your mind-body-connection.
