SILK & SPEAR - 1.5 hour

This workshop is really in Maria style. In this workshop there are sensuality, beautiful poses, work with hands, careful of movements, womanly manner of perfomance, playing with fast, sharp, isolated movements and accents, using a lot of space and working with audience. Try all of this with funny practices, dramatic combo and in creative decoration and feeling yourself in space.

Workshop from Ekaterina Konovalova/Divon

Life story in three minutes - 1.5 hour

Every dance has its own history. During this workshop we won't study a choreography, but will teach how to create choreography quickly. Have you ever created dance for several hours? It's possible and sometimes it's really necessary. At first, learn some theory about components of any dance, and next back it up with practice. Please, don't forget your pencils and notebook! Thank you.
