ARTISTIC AND CHOREOGRAPHIC WORKSHOP TOOLS – FOR MOVING PERFORMERS
Stephanie’s workshop is always based on improvisation and improvisation techniques, both in solo work and partnering work.
In class and creation, she always look for natural movement, and trying to stay away from what dancers think is dance, and trying to create movements that we not normally think of as dancing. She is very interested in body language, emotions, and happenings of real life, and how we can transform those happenings, emotions and situations into movement.
Stephanies teaching style and choreographic tools apply for all kind of movers. She has great experience in working with dancers / movers in the urban genre. The workshop will also include repetoire from creations like One, TRO and CRASH.
