A contemporary dance course aimed at exploring intention in movement. Even our subconscious intentions can expand or destroy us. By bringing intention and attention to our movement patterns and tendencies we can manifest powerful changes within! Through various modern dance techniques and a full class from floor to choreography, we will bring awareness to our actions and direct our energy constructively. Learn to consciously guide your movement while increasing technique, strength and flexibility in the body. When energy is released with intent, it has the power to create change. Come change with us!

Vera teaches various courses in Contemporary Flamenco technique, methods and choreographies and her own approach to this new, exciting art form.  In the classroom we work on the special expressive qualities of Flamenco, its dynamics, its formal language, its musicality. We get to know our individual body in this dance style and work on a deep and independent understanding of the body. In this way, we strengthen the relationship to our own movement and sharpen the instinct for an efficient, effortless and pleasant technique method. We approach classical and Contemporary Flamenco dance techniques and creative methods for composition and improvisation on this basis and learn choreographies while exploring our performative possibilities in Flamenco.

INSTRUCTOR: Vera Köppern

This class will begin by laying an anatomical-centric foundation which we will then apply to various dance techniques and compositional sequences. We are seeking a deep understanding of our body’s structure and with the awareness and embodiment of our deep musculature we will seek a soft and energetically open instrument and tune in for the improvisational second half of the course. With curiosity and openness for the unknown we will delve into the engagement of self and those around us. Through the use of concrete improvisational tools, we will eliminate the fear which can often accompany dance improvisation.

In Contemporary Playground we will focus on internal and external impulses, on awareness of space, time, forms and dynamics as we explore various movement qualities and their transformations; enriching creativity and individual expression.


LEVEL: This course is open to dancers of all levels!
