This module provides a condensed dance training primarily based in contemporary techniques, such as Release Technique, Floorwork. Through consecutive teaching modules taught by various teachers, a targeted training is developed which focuses on different key points.

At the center of contemporary choreographic work is self-creation. From the basis of creative methods, we train skills to recognize and elaborate upon interesting movement material which appears through/in spontaneous improvisations as well as to refine material through consideration of spatial and temporal laws. Through sharing these principles, the compositional senses are also sharpened. The goal is to create and perform long dance sequences, as well as smaller scenes or images.
