WEDNESDAY EVENING CONTACT IMPROVISATION COURSE

Otto will teach weekly in-depth Contact Improvisation classes, using his background in contact improvisation, contemporary dance/floorwork, acrobatics, qi gong and meditation.

The class is open for beginners to advanced dancers. The classes will be given as short courses of 4 weeks. This will give us the opportunity to dive deeper into the material with the same group of people for (at least) 4 weeks. We can repeat excercises and incorporate it into free dance so it gets into our body. Lifts, weight sharing, being aware of your moving body and that of your partner, rolling point of contact, rolling on the floor and up in the air!

Because we have two hours per week, there will be a lot of time to integrate everything into your own dance, letting everything go and enjoy the rich world of contact improvisation.

UPCOMING COURSE DATES
Evening course: Wednesdays October 7, 21, 28 & November 4 from 19.00-21.00h (note: no class during autumn break)

Movement Research class by Otto

ENG: A short hour where we explore our ways of moving, with the help of imagery, body sensations & awareness. We try to create a state of flow and joy while exploring our individual movement patterns and options to expand our creativity in moving in the present moment.

This class is based on my experience with Gaga dance, movement research, contact improvisation, contemporary dance and more. It is (mainly) individual, no steps, no dancing experience required, and usually a pretty good workout for your body.

NL: Een klein uur waar we onze manieren van bewegen onderzoeken, met behulp van beelden, sensaties en lichaamsbewustzijn. We proberen een staat van flow en plezier te creëren terwijl we onze eigen bewegingspatronen onderzoeken, en mogelijkheden om onze creativiteit met bewegen in het moment te vergroten.

Deze les is gebaseerd op mijn ervaring met Gaga dance, movement research, contact improvisatie, hedendaagse dans en meer. Het is (voornamelijk) individueel, geen pasjes, geen danservaring nodig en normaal gesproken een aardige workout voor je lichaam 🙂

PUUR DREUMES

Woordeloos en gelijkwaardig verbinden. Met jezelf, jouw dreumes en anderen. We spelen, verkennen en ontmoeten elkaar in vrijheid en vanuit beweging en klank. Gedurende een uur laten we ons inspireren door de onbevangen belevingswereld van de kinderen, en volgen hen door middel van geïmproviseerde interactie.

‘Puur Dreumes’ is geschikt voor baby’s van 6 maanden t/m peuters van 2 jaar, én alle volwassenen die ervan genieten om samen te zijn met kinderen, hun eigen speelsheid te verkennen én elkaar op een authentieke en onbevangen manier te ontmoeten.

PRAKTISCH

Momenteel staat er geen Puur Dreumes op de agenda.

CLASSES BEFORE THE SUMMER BREAK

April 21 Cancelled due to Easter!
April 28
– Anneroos: Blindfold jam!
We will discover new qualities of movements while being immersed in the darkness, and we allow our other senses to expand. We will follow the flow, and connect with each with other in a playful and focused way. To keep it safe, we will move slowly, and pair up blindfolded dancers with sighted spotters (and of course switch after some time).
May 5 – Otto: Freedom in resistance
Freedom, freedom, freedom, oi! Today we will work with resistance. We will notice when resistance breaks the flow, and we notice when not resisting can break the flow. What opportunities resisting in a right way may bring, what new discoveries, unexpected moves and fun.
May 12 – Donate: ‘Simpele liften, vliegen en dragen’. We gaan onderzoeken hoe je heel simpel kunt liften en gelift worden. Hoe herken je een aanbod en hoe doe je een aanbod? Hoe draag je jezelf en de ander?
English: we are going to research how you can lift and be lifted in an easy & simple way. How can you recognize an offer and how do you make an offer? How can you carry yourself and the other?
May 19 – Anneroos
May 26 – Harm Jan
June 2 – Otto: “The topic of tonight will be Back to Back. Getting comfortable with feeling the others and you own back, walking back to back, lifting back to back, sliding back to back. We start with bringing awareness to our backs on our own and grow into partnerwork. ”
June 9 – Guido
June 16 – Donate: vandaag is het thema ‘meer dan een duet’. We gaan onderzoeken hoe een dans groter kan worden dan een duet, hoe kom je er bij, hoe nodig je iemand erbij uit, hoe houd je contact met meer dan 1 persoon in de dans….. en meer!
English: Today the theme is ‘more than a duet’. We will research how a dance can become bigger than a duet, how can you join, how can you invite, how do you stay in contact with more than one person in a dance…. and more!
