Concept

The school renounces deliberately to convey many different styles of dance and focuses on contemporary dance techniques which integrates anatomical understanding of the body, breathing, sensation and flow of movement. For a body, that is trained on this basic principles it is easy to acquire further techniques.

A profound movement and dance training is base for improvisation and performance.

Improvisation – solistic and in group – as well as contact improvisation are important issues of the education.

Improvisation is used as means of «Exploration» as well as «Instant Composition», an independent form of stage performance. As regards exploration is used to discover creative ways of expression, to explore well known and new movement material and to find compositional elements.

In improvisation creative power and potential can develop up to their full capacity. With purposeful and differenciated research, manifold methods and instructions for autonomous work are communicated. In this wide range of learning physical, emotional and mental aspects are integrated and a high level of flexibility, permeability and awareness of the actors are achieved. Subjects as choreography and solistic work complete the new won perceptions and skills.

Performance is a further focus of education and includes along with matter and composition (elaboration, realization) the stage-behaviour (execution, charism, presence, personality).

The on stage situation is exercised from the beginning in class, in public showings, on small stages and in public places, on a big stage in professional scale.
