This workshop is aimed at school teachers who are interested in dance performances and would also like to bring more dance and movement into their everyday school life.
Bérengère Valour from France is an invited festival guest with her piece dancer/danssser#1 which will be shown in schools. She is an experienced choreographer and dance mediator and we are happy to have her for this workshop. She will propose different ideas using concrete tools such as images, music or objects to help students discover the power of their own movement and their unique way of moving and introduce them to the art of dance.
No previous knowledge is required.
The workshop is free of charge and will be in English. Please register until 15th of January under: email@example.com
