Online class to learn – Tanztheater

As you will know all face to face classes have been suspended so I created this online class.

Tanztheater is an expressive dance form but is also deeply rooted in technical elements. I filmed these sequences as part of my work for Morley College London but thought it would be nice to share this with those of you who want to get a little inside into the teaching.There is a little extra assessment at the end: An improvisation which you can answer in any way you like. Try to make it an authentic and true answer. Don’t create something because it looks nice but find that unique voice and don’t be afraid to be totally honest. Send it to me and I can give feedback or, with permission, even put it online. Here is a breakdown of the video: In case you have spotify, you can also follow this playlist: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1w2…
