How is it possible to work on the floor with children starting from posture, teaching them the sense of rhythm with hands and feet? What music is appropriate? And with older students? How is it possible to help them controlling their body, working on technique and first pirouettes, training with jumps and variations? All these questions will be answered during workshops, which will be also excellent ways to deal with other teachers.
But that’s not all: Master will face also topics related to choreography, costumes, scenes and lights. Dancers of Compagnia Opus Ballet will give their precious contribution performing brief pieces during the workshop. They will introduce the use of props and will help teachers to understand how is possible to bring astract performances on stage using particular objects.
