Expect a motivating, physically demanding workshop, which brings together different music and dance styles from Zimbabwe, Nigeria and South Africa. You will (re)develop your creative expression and improve your mobility, strength, flexibility, coordination and sense of rhythm.

Dynamics, Rhythm and Texture

This is a physical contemporary class, which will involve strong, complex and technical sequences in and out of the floor, focusing on performance and stamina. The desired outcomes are the development of the dancers’ creative mind, drive, passion, determination, strength, musicality and, most importantly, their honesty and intention.
