Contemporary Technique for non-professionals by Evangelos Poulinas


contemporary moves

In this workshop you will get a taste of what contemporary dance can be. We are using ideas and practices from various contemporary dance techniques to form a well rounded dance training. Movement tasks will be given as a vocabulary in order to create different phrases and structures, along with the exploration of improvisation – all of which we can later use to ‘perform’. We will explore themes such as dancing in a group, dancing as a couple and dancing alone. This workshop is open to all ages and to beginners; no dance background is necessary. You only need to be open to explore movement ideas and to find interest and enjoyment through the process.
