A few words about the workshop

Through movement games, we dance using imagination, our bodies, voices and music. We explore movement, discovering our bodies, studying space and time and relishing our trip into movement. With improvisation and the principles of contemporary dance as our starting point, we learn to collaborate, work solo or as a team.
