Dance Styles-Online

Course with Britta Koch

Online Classes take place weekly live on ZOOM. These courses are designed specifically for the online format and enable personal feedback through a limited number of participants. Online courses offer the highest predictability, safety and the possibility to participate in classes of tanzhaus nrw even when you are far from Düsseldorf.

Britta teaches a varied mix of urban styles, modern dance, jazz dance, contemporary dance and dance theatre for children and youths. While the younger participants playfully get to know dance basics through little tasks and stories, developing a feeling for their bodies, the space and their fellow dancers, the older participants will deal more with the techniques in different dance styles. The choreographies danced may be inspired by movement ideas, songs or movement sequences. Some are predetermined, others originate in the process from and with the dancers. The freedom given by the fact that every human being is different and that together, one may achieve great things, opens her courses for people with special physical or mental requirements, too. Britta sees her courses as decidedly inclusive.
