free entrance 

Body_space experience in everyday school life
We will deal with our body in space by means of dance and movement. In addition to practical exercises, we will also theoretically address questions such as: What happens in a dance project? What is the meaning of body and space? How can one get involved with foreign movement and circumstances? Are there connections to everyday school life and can elements be integrated into lessons? With simple exercises the own body feeling is awakened and new dance and movement possibilities are mobilized. Full of curiosity and joy we want to actively explore and create the space in the group with choreographic elements.
A lively exchange with Try&Error is in the foreground on this day!
