Course Content (Syllabus)
In Movement - Dance I, students work individually as well as in groups and pairs to explore, improve and broaden their relation to space (the shape of the body and movement, topography and orientation) and time (rhythm, tempo and duration) through specific exercises, games and improvisations. They further investigate their relationship with gravity, energy, tension, release and balance. Students learn to communicate and respond to everything that is happening in the moment, which results in animated and true reactions. They begin to recognize their own patterns of habitual movement and action and their inherent restrictions. Movement - Dance I also covers a brief practical introduction to the movement - breath- sound relationship. At the end of the semester students perform their own short choreographies - actions. All Movement - Dance classes (I-VI) incorporate exercises to improve the level of physical skill (strength, flexibility, stamina), games to build trust, spontaneity, rhythm, expression, and perception to spark the imagination.
