BodyParkour (10+)

Heroes in overcoming obstacles!

BodyParkour is an urban art and dance related form of movement. Akos created this word combination out of the word body and the street art form Parkour. Influences of this particular style are Parkour, Tricking, HipHop and Breaking, Capoeira and the Circus, but most of all Contemporary Dance.

During the workshop we will make specific movements to prepare ourselves for the physical movements, creating dance combinations, some small body-stunt moves and easy acrobatic dance movements. The movement quality has a touch of reference to our great comic action hero Jackie Chan. We will use our body as obstacle and use a specific cube assembled out of scaffolding.

A workshop for everyone, who wants to try out a striking and exciting, but above all challenging and trendy dance style.

Bring comfortable shoes (sneakers), knee pads and if possible elbow pads!

Bodyparkour® teaching and performing method is pioneering a hybrid movement form (animal & human locomotion, Tricking, Breaking, Parkour, Contemporary, Contact Improvisation and Partnering).
