Acrobatic Dance | By Tarek Rammo

Intermediate / advanced | 3 and 4 October

In this workshop we will explore acrobatic movement through improvisation and composition. The participants will have the chance to put their acrobatic vocabulary to use in assignments that deal with the use of space, timing, music and reacting to the environment. Working on acrobatics from a different perspective, it allows the technique to become a creative tool rather than a goal in itself.

Parallel to this, we will also spend time on learning basic movement principles in order to increase awareness of our bodies and to enhance the movement quality of our acrobatics. This will help in moving softer, bigger and with more connection to nonacrobatic movement.

The workshop is aimed at professional circus and dance performers / students and people with several years of experience in acrobatics and dance. This is to ensure that the participants get the most value out of the workshop, as the main focus is on implementing existing skills into creative tasks.
