Contemporary Dance School
– Course Topics

CONTEMPORARY / NEW DANCE

Inspired by many different techniques within contemporary dance, such as Limon, Graham, release, floor-work and Flying Low, we will work on building a strong and varied basic technique. Emphasis is on flow, going into and coming off the floor and proper breathing.

KOREOGRAFI

Vi undersøger, hvordan man kan gå til en kreativ proces, og hvordan man kan komponere både solo- og gruppeværker. Som elev på danselinjen får du en grundlæggende indføring i koreografisk tænkning, så du kan skabe værker på egen hånd. Sammen analyserer vi andres dansearbejde og studerer koreografi i workshops med både praktiske og teoretiske opgaver.

IMPROVISATION

Through fixed structures and specific tasks, we will work with various movement principles and -qualities in improvisation. You will get the opportunity to explore your own movements and your body’s possibilities to find out what is most interesting for you. We will also be working with group dynamics in improvised movement.

SOLOUNDERVISNING

Som elev på højskolen, har du i løbet af dit ophold mulighed for at tilvælge dans, som soloundervisning mod ekstra betaling. Din sololærer er professionel danser.

CONTACT-IMPROVISATION / PARTNERING

This is where we focus on dancing with each other. We will be working on improvisation while maintaining physical contact with one or more other dancers as well as the creation of physical dialogue and specific lifting and partnering techniques.
All of this is useful in both improvised and choregraphed material.

KAMPSPORT

For at blive bedre dansere bruger vi elementer fra forskellige kampsportdiscipliner. Kampsport indeholder meget sofistikerede former for bevægelse, og alle med interesse for fysiske udtryksformer og teknikker. Du kan lære meget ved at studere kampsport. Inspirationskilderne er capoeira, brasiliansk jiu jitsu, kung fu, systema og aikido. Vi kommer til at lege med nogle af teknikkerne og på den måde udvide vores forståelse af, hvad det vil sige at være danser.
