CONTEMPORARY DANCE WITH ALEXANDRA BĂLĂȘOIU & EVA DANCIU - 6-8 YEARS OLD - @ PERFORMANCE SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN

The class aims to acquaint children with the world of contemporary dance, a territory for discoveries and continual development, in which limits are constantly redefined, a world of courage where we learn how strong and flexible we are.
The class will tackle notions of motor skills, balance, understanding physical principles that help us, fall, jump, pivot and move with pleasure and ease.  We will work with both fixed structures that contain fundamental principles for the development of motor intelligence and memory, as well as improvisations meant to develop courage, creativity and the knack for exploring.
Movement is the most accessible component of an individual. The way we walk, sit or watch contains in itself an infinite wealth of information about our past, present and potential. By embodying certain intelligent motor schemes, we free ourselves from negative tensions, emotions and thoughts. In a world where we are bombarded with prefab ideas and images, our body is a living archive and the only honest guide for moving forward. Feeling good in your skin starts with knowing and controlling your body. Freedom of movement means a fluid and creative way of thinking.

Eva Danciu:
My name is Eva Danciu, I am 22 years old and I am an actress and classical and contemporary dancer. I graduated from the choreography high school CNA Ion Vidu Timișoara, then I worked as a ballerina for the National Romanian Opera in Timișoara for 4 years, while also studying theatre at the Music and Theatre University. I collaborated with the National Theatre in Timișoara, the German State Theatre, the Merlin Theatre for kids and youth, and the Jewish State Theatre, on theatrical productions, musicals and theatre-dance shows. I've been dancing since forever and I want to share the joy of movement with little ones who start exploring their corporeality.
