10 to 11:30 Uhr
Richard Overscheven's teaching is based on a combination of ballet and contemporary dance with an emphasis on position and movement efficiency, while at the same time taking into account the individual needs and abilities of each participant. The training is structured with exercises on the bar from simple to complex sequences of movements in space, which sharpen the sense of movement through dynamic changes between positions and spatial orientation. The aim is to discover ballet as a tool in contemporary dance by giving the participants more freedom of movement and awareness of their own movement potential. The training can thus form an innovative basis for improvisation.
