About Tanztheater Beginners with Adrian Look
Classes start on Weds 10 Jan 2024 and run until Weds 27 March 2024 (excluding Weds 14 Feb due to half term)
Develop expression through movement with Tanztheater.Tanztheater is a dance technique that combines elements of ballet and contemporary dance in a dramatic environment. It was developed by iconic choreographer Pina Bausch.
Starting with a short game, you will learn to combine technique and improvisation to express a varied range of emotions. This will be followed by exercises to enhance body awareness and musicality accompanied by live music by Thomas Broda.
You will have the opportunity to tie everything together with choreography. It is a technical class, encouraging individual expression and a general level of fitness.
This class is suitable for beginners and will be taken at a slower pace with less complexity than the intermediate class.
