Choreographer: Simona Paraschivu

Module I: 13.02 – 6.03.2017

Module II: 20.03 – 10.04.2017

Module III: 8.05 – 29.05.2017

Every Monday, between 5.30p.m. and 6.30p.m. 

We play and improvise in order to discover the human body, to create and tell stories.

We explore and come up with new ideas in an artistic environment, with a strong bent on sensations.

Through games and movement exercises, kids will freely express their imagination, becoming themselves creative personal accomplishments. Contemporary dance is an ideal form to educate the child in movement and spatial orientation.

Inhibition and self-censure are not present during childhood, making it the most appropriate moment to be creative, to dance, to shape and educate our body and soul for the discipline of free dance.

The contemporary dance courses for children that the National Centre of Dance has organized for the past 4 years resume this fall.

They guide the youngsters in their exploration of the basics of contemporary dance.

Classes are meant to engage children in creative movement activities, which help develop physical, rhythmic and coordination abilities, stimulating decision-making and expression other than verbal. They encourage participants both to individually express themselves, and to coordinate and collaborate with others through group activities.

The course is devised so that it facilitates the understanding of contemporary dance principles through creative exercises which develop the ability to communicate, the flexibility and coordination of the children involved. The present module will play out during 8 weekly meetings and will feature a final performance on behalf of the children under the supervision of the choreographer.
