About the Workshop |

The workshop is an in-depth workshop, which constitutes a learning experience in physical and transformative research.
No formal background is required in dance, but one must come up with a background in some movement work
The workshop will deal with:
Parting - movement together, in different ways, moving the partner to movement, proper weight distribution, reading the movement of the partner
Floor work - Using our physical structure to move most efficiently on floor, maintaining energy and energy in motion, entering and exiting the floor from different heights
Accuracy - Separation of muscle groups, manipulation of the right, in pairs and apart
Rhythms - Practice different rhythms and understand their role and effectiveness in movement
Impressionization - the recruitment of rhythms and physical conditions to create qualities of movement and flow between different qualities
Elik about the workshop:
"During the workshop I will convey ideas and worldviews in the movement whose roots are in the martial arts field. We will deal with a lot of pairs work, manipulations, reflexes, traffic conditioning and expanding range of movement, as well as basic rhythms and expression in motion.
In addition we will explore the language we produce in motion, the feelings that physical elements produce and our ability to communicate through this understanding ... "
