T.H.E Contemporary Dance Workshop

- OUTLINE -

This programme will explore floor work, release technique, and improvisation. Students will also receive the opportunity to learn a short excerpt of T.H.E repertoire
- Students will be introduced to contemporary dance and improvisation, as well as the content of the full programme
- Students will be led through a formal technique class. This class will include both a floor and standing warm-up that emphasises and develops flexibility, alignment, mobility and strength. This is followed by simple floor and center practice, movements across the floor, and finally a traveling combination.
- Students will be led through a structured improvisation workshop / a series of improvisational tasks.

- Students will take turns performing the short excerpt of T.H.E repertory including their solos in groups

- LEARNING OBJECTIVES -

Through exploring a vast range of dynamic qualities, spatial implications, and temporal influences on movement and expression, students will gain a better understanding of contemporary dance technique and concepts, both physically and intellectually. We hope to:
1. Promote skills in learning and executing a diverse range of contemporary dance movement
2. Further develop physical strength, stamina, coordination, and flexibility, as well as individual determination
3. Develop a deep understanding of the use of breath in relation to movement flow in the body
4. Broaden spatial awareness and musicality, and increase students’ understanding of movement dynamics
5. Further develop performance skills in front of peers
