WeMove Studio invites you to this special workshop with Caroline André. Come and play in the rhythm of Jazz, explore technique and learn to work the room!

In this Contemporary Jazz workshop we will be focusing on the foundational elements of Jazz dance in an explorative and fun way. Musicality and rhythm, low body weight, isolations, dynamical contrasts and expression are a few of the cornerstones that we will be working on. We will do this through technique exercises, improvisation/creative exploration and choreography. There will also be influences from Contemporary dance – mostly in the way we will be working with the room, improvisation and each other. Prepare to leave this workshop feeling groovy, playful and boosted with energy!

In the workshop we will dive into the Foundations of Iyengar yoga method.

  • Sequencing that develops strength, flexibility, stamina, concentration, and body alignment
  • Highly developed teaching methodology
  • Precise use of language
  • Demonstration and teaching of specific points to develop understanding and intelligent action
  • Individual correction and adjustment of students, when necessary 
  • Relevance of practice and incorporation into daily life
  • Ways to use yoga to ease various ailments and stress
  • Use of props, such as blankets, blocks, and straps, to facilitate learning and adjust yoga postures to individual needs.

We will follow these foundations during the workshop:

Grounding: the importance of standing poses and the connection to mental alertness

withdrawing the senses of perception: forward bending and hip openers. 

Rejuvenate and uplift the spirit: 

Back bending- how to access a safe and beneficial practice for your spine and organs  well-being

change your perspective- inversion.
