What is Bodyparkour?
It is a created word of body and Parkour, reflect ing on the parallel approach of dance (contemporary) and art of movement (parkour).
BodyParkour is art and dance related new exiting form of movements. Based on the "global dancing" method, linking different dance-movement information together and research the connection between them. Influenced and inspired by the current trend sports Tricking, Parkour & Freerunning.
Bodyparkour is also integrating information from Open-Choreography, Contact Improvisation and Partnering, Breakdance and HipHop, Capoeira. Using any obstacles, architecture to dancing-moving with in-door and out-door.
During the workshop we will make specific movements to prepare ourselves for this deeply physical movements, creating dance combinations and easy acrobatic dance movements. Also for our movements we will be using a specific cube assembled together out of scaffolding. The movement quality has a touch of reference to our great comic action hero is Jacky Chan.
All kind of dancers, sport, Parkour, tricking and Capoira lovers who are looking for a movement form which can integrate all this information to reach an acrobatic new dance style are welcome!
