Tidligere kursus 2008

Body, Dynamics and Relationships

- i samarbejde med Danseværket og Dansens Hus

Det første kursustilbud i foråret 2008 ledes af Michael Platt, koreograf, underviser og instruktør i Suffolk, England. Der er tale om et weekendkursus i Århus for professionelle dansere og dansepædagoger. Målet er

  • at skabe spændende koreografier, som er velegnede til børn og unge
  • at lære forskellige strategier for undervisningen
  • at skabe engagement og effektiv indlæring hos de unge


Michael Platt beskriver kurset således:

“A practical dance workshop weekend in which participants will explore imaginative ways of developing creative dance ideas from an initial theme. Using Laban’s Movement Analysis we will examine ways in which an overall theme can be interpreted through aspects of the Body, Space, Dynamics and Relationships to ensure a rich and varied movement experience. Participants will experience a variety of movement activities, games and creative tasks which will be used to build exciting choreographies appropriate to children and young people.

We will also explore a range of teaching strategies to promote engagement and effective learning when developing creative dance ideas with young people”
