One’s own Dance – Dance for all
How can dance change the way we live and connect to each other
The workshop offers a plunge into the unconscious and the discovery of one’s own dance, with the method developed by Flora, of Brazil’s Movimentarte Institute. Letting go of one’s own masks and formal judgments, it is possible to experience true contact with one’s intimacy – as well with everyone else’s experiences. By means of several dynamics, including contemporary dance, Contact Improvisation, Five Senses Activation and the basis of Brazilian dances, the course is aimed at people with or without disabilities, of all ages, with or without any dance experience. As part of the Red Bull Amaphiko Dance 4 Good project, the course will be a preparation, in which participants will first look within, to then connect with the outside world, to see the power of dance as new a way of social transformation. The course will end with an amazing Dance 4 Good day with Jams, Experiences and Inspirations.
Flora Bitancourt wants to bring a few of her students and teachers of the Movimentarte Institute (Brazil) to this workshop and therefor started a crowdfunding campaign. More information on how to support her in this endeavour here
