Contemporary Dance Fusion Workshop, Judith State

Contemporary dance fusion workshop

This workshop is for all those passionate about exploring contemporary dance and its adjacent forms.

“Working at WASP throughout the past two years with people who had started their meeting with dance from a zero point and observing their remarkable capacities of adaptation and evolution, I decided to continue these workshops with a new module in which the material will be structured progressively, having a more intense approach and being finalized with a public presentation. The participation in the final presentation will be optional, but students will be encouraged to experiment what could be their “first meeting with the audience”.

The workshop will include technical exercises, improvisation, freedom of expression, play, relaxation and breathing exercises, combining contemporary dance with jazz, hip-hop and elements of musicality, which will bring the dancers in front of their own selves, free, stripped of thoughts and ready to express their feelings through movement.”
