Modules

These practical classes provide a framework for students to explore movement potential using a variety of approaches. Technical, performance, improvisational and interpretative skills will be addressed using the interplay between action, imagination, observation and questioning. Students will be encouraged to reflect on their own practices as dancers and to find ways to explore detailed kinaesthetic awareness through testing (trial and error) and to define how movement is experienced in relation to space and time.
