(Dance) for Soul Sake/Contemporary Improvised Jazz
Be spontaneous and daring!
In this dance class Hagit introduces her unique style, blending elements of contemporary dance and improvisation. The emphasis is on energy, spontaneity, livelihood, playfulness and authenticity. Hagit is blending floor work, Yoga, Limon, Release technique and improvisation in an original way, accompanied with great music in order to allow a different way to learn a dance technique.
It is an energetic and fun class, emphasising dynamics, timing, musicality, physicality and emotions. Using the body and the movement as a source of exploration and expression. The class invites participants to be spontaneous and daring in the types and quality of the movement vocabulary, challenging their choices, familiarity and physicality.
A hip class taught by Hagit in London on a regular basis, as well as in different dance festivals and centres all around Europe and Israel.
For the last 15 years Hagit has been developing this technique class, believing that dance should be learned in a positive, energetic, fast and ecstatic environment, where a celebration of movement, emotion, and group dynamic can happen.
The fun environment enables Hagit to push the students to their limits and to enjoy moving. Combining her skills and expertise as a dance movement therapist with her philosophical approaches to dance, performance and education, she encourages passionate, emotional and experimental approach to dancing. The workshop is the best way to discover Hagit’s creative process.
The emphasis in the class will be on the enjoyment of moving through simple yet challenging dance routines; shifting constantly from set material to improvisation, allowing each dancer to explore his/her own way of moving.
