Weekend Workshop for Men

In this weekend workshop for men we go back to the empowering potential of dance. We approach motion through experientiality and action. We expand our understanding of our own bodies and explore the potential of dance through improvisation and guided motion exercises. Activities done solo, in pairs and together as a group challenge us to work with physicality, the continuity of motion and imagination. Rap, disco and baile-funk music pump up our energy and make us sweat, while more meditative chords take us back to sensitivity and sensuality.

The course is instructed in Finnish and English.
