Class description:

Modern/Contemporary Dance
My lessons are based on the Joos-Leeder technique and,- expanded by elements from Release-, Limon- and Alexander Technique, aim at a comprehensive training of alignment, flow, joints, muscles and musicality . These organisation principles support every dancer and choreographer to find his individual access to dance and creation.

Kurt Joos, co-founder of the German expressionist dance, was a pupil of Rudolf von Labans and next to Mary Wigman, Harold Kreutzberg and others one of the best-known dancers and choreographers of the 1920s and 1930s, a representative of Expressionism. The technique he developed has become an integral part of the dance education of Essen’s Folkwang Arts University, which he founded.

Modern Dance Fundamentals
This course is a great starting point for complete beginners.
It enables beginners to experience the pure joy of dancing in a relaxed atmosphere. We will develop skills, coordination and strength while discovering and deepening the anatomical knowledge behind modern dance technique.
The class consists of short sequences, exercises and flowing routines that help with weight shifts, twists, jumps, rolls and falls.
We fill the space with movement, dynamics and musicality. We ground the body in a playful and relaxed manner and expand access to dance and creativity.
This course is for people who want to learn or deepen the art of dance.
Please come in comfortable dance attire (barefoot or socks).









Tanz Company Lab
Dance Technique and Choreography, with a focus on contemporary practices and performance:

The idea of this course is to experience a Dance company-similar dynamic, beginning with a dance technique class, then working on a choreographic creative process (rehearsal) to finally show the results of it. In technique, the students will be challenged to work on their body’s alignment and increase coordination and strength abilities, developing awareness and motion in multiple spatial planes. The choreography component of this course is about learning and developing movement with a range of choreographic and composition approaches.
