Training Workshop on "Contemporary (floor) technique und partnering work" at the Akademie des Tanzes, Mannheim.1660

This advanced training is designed for specialist modern/contemporary and classical dance teachers. Shannon Moreno and Farley Johansson have been invited to lead the training sessions.
Training will focus on expanding the knowledge of basic floor work and contemporary partnering skills, developing partnering skills through talking and showing different ways to approach bodies, how to give and take weight, bringing an awareness of how to use the strength of our bones to support weight rather than always 'muscling' through movements with forced effort, and on time for questions and discussion and encouraging dialogue between the different schools to assist an exchange of ideas and information.
