A as in Anfänger*in/ Beginner: The participants will learn the underlying principles of a dance technique in doable exercises, first step combinations and mini choreographies, gaining the opportunity to experience the much-lauded dance flow with the aid of the instructors. Pluck up the courage!
AmV as in Anfänger*in mit Vorkenntnissen/ Experienced Beginners: We recommend having initial dance experience under one’s belt before enrolling, from the Beginner Course, for example, to be properly equipped with enough security to enter the next level and encounter new challenges. Building on these fundamentals, the participants will face stronger challenges and support within new tasks, more complex mini choreographies and (possibly) free improvisation. Sounds like work, but it is fun, first and foremost.
M as in Mittelstufe/ Experienced: We also recommend bringing solid dance experience, for example from an Experienced Beginners course, as well as regular training. This technical security, as we may call it, helps to move confidently between an awareness for one’s own body, its potential, but also its own boundaries and the next challenges. Shorter choreographies evolve into longer pieces, and the dancers gain more opportunity for freedom in expression and individual configuration of the movement material.
F as in Fortgeschritten/ Advanced: Predictable by now, we know, but we also recommend carrying solid previous dance experience from an Experienced course here, as well as regular training. Depending on the dance style, the instructors will challenge dancers with more complex warm-ups, combinations throughout space as well as with sophisticated choreographies. In short, we are on the home straight for the next level.
P as in Profi/ Professional: Dancers should be enrolled in academic dance training or have graduated already to use this offering as part of their regular vocational practice.
