ARTICULATED DYNAMICS FOR KIDS (9-12YRS)
The workshop introduces the participants to the basic principles of Articulated Dynamics. We will play, dance and work on diving in and out of the floor, traveling through it and learning how to use it. We will explore different qualities of movement, speeds, spacing, falling and jumping, through improvisations and combinations.
A dance workshop for children ages 9-12 years old with or without previous dance experience.
