About the workshop

This seminar challenges the dancers’ sense of rhythm. Rhythm and coordination of movement are the basis for the entire body’s neurological interconnection, the improvement of its structure, and the enhancement of athletic and physical performance in general. Above all, however, rhythm means communication—with our body, with other bodies, and with our environment. Improving internal and external communication through movement and especially through coordination of movements is the primary goal of this seminar. Participants will experience basic, simple, and complex movement patterns, designed to hone their ability to coordinate their movement so as to communicate better at all levels, whether on stage or in everyday life.
