Workshop for Men: Why Do We Move?

NOTE! Though the enrolment has officially ended, there's still some spots available. If you're intrested, please contact elina.ruoho-kurola@zodiak.fi

The course is focused on the self knowledge of our body and on the research of simple movements and their meaning. The participants will be challenged to use the physicality for a deep expression and to find their own limits in the dimension of the gestures. The training will guide the group to develop the awareness of the body language, alone and together with the other.

Classes are structured with a warm up based on exercises to build endurance and stamina in combination with lengthening and stretching sessions. Short combination of movements and choreographies are used for challenge our brain, memorizing steps and shapes, and express ourselves. During the course, we will be going through basic elements from different dance techniques: floor work, improvisation, contact and physical theatre.

The course is intended for men of all ages, for beginners as well as dancers with previous experience. Course is in English and Finnish.
