Workshop Description: Partnering

Our body is the same in every movement and in any style but the possibility to change is essential. We focus on the principal of adaptation during the workshop. Through several exercise we establish a strong and united body. We focus on the timing and the sharp reactions towards our partner while we practice together. The material is based on several different ways of partnering that we learned throughout our practices and on material that we developed together during creations and research. Dynamic and powerful dance where we only deal with physicality that defines the essential movements. In the workshop we teach various combinations to experience power, support, speed, acrobatic movements and the unique feeling of connection.
