Created for the young and adult non-professional dancer, DanzArt´s Creative Ballet Workshop is an opportunity to work with the HNK principal dancer, George Stanciu, in the technical, artistic, and creative elements underlying ballet and modern dance.
This 4-hour workshop offers a holistic approach to dance training, integrating the rigorous technical elements of ballet and modern dance with somatic practices for strength, alignment, and body-awareness, and the support of each individual’s creative and artistic intelligence. The exercises will be taught and executed in manageable segments with special attention to stretching, alignment, core strength, and balance.
In addition to the technical training, creative processing through composition and organized improvisation will also be incorporated as a tool for the dancer to develop body awareness and express his/her inner state, thoughts and feelings. The workshop will finish with a choreography jointly created by the participants and the teacher and a discussion to share the dance workshop experience.
This exciting, challenging and nurturing workshop is open to beginner, intermediate and advanced-level students.
