Preparation for Dance Training: Intensive Summer Course
23 – 27 July 2018, 10am – 5.30pm
Motionhouse Rehearsal Space, Vitsoe, Old Warwick Rd, Leamington Spa CV31 3NT

If you are starting full time dance training this autumn, this course will help you prepare and give you insight into what to expect.

The five-day intensive course will focus on improving technique, exploring contact improvisation and developing performance skills. Methods used draw on a range of techniques including partnering and creative exploration to investigate the natural movement of the body.

Participants should be prepared to be pushed physically during this challenging and enriching course.

Classes start with warm-up exercises, gradually building to more challenging phrases and choreographic briefs. Participants develop body awareness, the use of the body structure in weight giving and bearing, and an understanding of weight, momentum and flow in movement.  A strong Motionhouse feature is our contact work, characterised by fluid movement and weight exchange, encompassing small falls, leaps and catches which may then build to the creation of highly dynamic and exhilarating dances.  As this vocabulary is extended, skills in partnering, ensemble work, improvisation and choreography can be developed.
