Playful partnering workshop for contemporary dancers



The classes include technical partnering exercises, sequences, as well as tools for creating movement material with a foundation to different kind of exercises with a partner. We will approach the partnering through sequences with momentum, playfulness, tools from martial arts, acrobatics and contact improvisation. The classes are suitable for people with some experience of contemporary dance, martial art as well as to advanced level contemporary dancers. The class can be as well modified for the level and interest of the participants.

Janis and Nella have been teaching partnering workshops for various groups, and they like to mix already found material together with creative approaches. Janis and Nella can be very flexible with bringing more challenge to the group or making things less challenging within the same exercise so that people from different dance backgrounds can easily work together.
