PLESNO IZPOPOLNJEVANJE / DANCE TRAINING:
19. – 23. 9. 2016 9.00 – 11.00 – Dagmar Dachauer (A/BE)
About the class
Dagmar’s class is contemporary dance and movement class, based upon embodied imagination, floor work, release technique, yoga and improvisation.
During the class we shall research the ways of how to stimulate our imagination in order to direct our body and let the body inspire our imagination. It is a physical, playful and musical process on the lookout for availability, efficiency and pleasure in dancing. Furthermore we shall also train coordination skills, stamina, strength, challenge established patterns and the way we multi-task, learn and integrate new information.
Dagmar Dachauer studied dance at Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten/MTD (BA) as well as at P.A.R.T.S. (Performing Arts Research and Training Studios) in Brussels and at the Circus Department of DOCH (Dance and Circus University) in Stockholm.
