WORKSHOPS

Movements with Meaning

The Culture of Dance.

FREE Weekend Workshops Autumn 2020


Med støtte fra DIF & DGI's foreningspulje præsenterer World Dance Academy "Movements with Meaning: The Culture of Dance"


I World Dance Academy har vi længe arbejdet med alverdens dans og med dans fra et kulturelt perspektiv: Dans kommer fra og af noget. Med dyb respekt forsøger vi at komme tæt på stilarternes oprindelse, opsøge disse stilarters talentfulde dansere, skabere og legender, og give dem en stemme i den danske dansebranche. Samtidig prøver vi løbende at åbne op for og give plads til nye unikke stilarter.


Vi ønsker at give folk et indblik i vores kontinuerlige arbejde med afrikanske, caribianske, afro-amerikanske og latinamerikanske dansestilarter (sort og brun dansekultur) , og inviterer derfor til gratis workshops hver weekend i september og oktober (den 17.10 undtaget), hvor dans som kultur og mere end blot bevægelsessekvenser vil være det centrale omdrejningspunkt.


Formålet er naturligvis at prøve noget nyt, have det sjov og opleve dansens fællesskabende karakter, men det er ligeledes at uddanne og udvikle hinanden, så vi kan praktiserer stilarter bevidst og blive klogere på os selv, hinanden, dansen og ikke mindst de kulturer, hvorfra dansen udspringer.

Der vil både være workshops for børn og voksne, samt lectures og talk. Se detaljer i nedenstående.
