Power Of Dance
Date: July – August 2010
Your chance to dance with 5 international choreographers!
Power of Dance was an exciting new opportunity for young people aged 16-25 to train with renowned choreographers from around the world.
Dancers were taken from rehearsal studio to stage as they explored different dance styles from Argentina, India, New Zealand, Africa and England.
From African dance to Street, from Contemporary to Tango, from Ballet to Classical Indian dance, this intensive training programme prepared young people over six weeks to perform in a new dance-opera called Anjali and the Enchanting Anklets.
Power of Dance will teach new dance vocabulary, styles and techniques to improve the participants understanding of their body. At the end of the workshops, dancers should understand:
Accuracy, Alignment, Allowing, Amplitude, Articulation, Attendance, Attitude, Awareness, Breathing, Centering, Commitment, Connectedness, Consistency, Courage, Endurance, Expressiveness, Flexibility, Focus, Grounding, Honesty, Inner Attitude, Integration, Memory, Musicality, Open Mindedness, Passion, Principles, Questioning, Range of Motion, Risking, Releasing, Spatial Awareness, Stamina, Strength, Style, Trust and Vocabulary.
