WORKSHOPS ///

Sara Angius has been teaching for the past 10 years, offering a high quality of dance education at different levels. She has taught dance in several contests, such as professional companies (LDTX Beijing Dance, Beijing, China); free professional trainning programs (Profi Training Tanzpunkt Hannover, Germany); professional dance schools (DAF – Dance Arts Faculty, Rome, Italy); professional circus schools (Escuela Internacional de Circo y Teatro CAU, Granada, Spain); primary/high schools (CJD International School Braunschweig, Germany); private schools (T.A.N.Z. – Braunschweig | Schule für Bühnentanz & Company, Braunschweig, Germany; Accordanse école de danse, Bruxelles, Belgium); professional and pre-professional dance programs (Anatomie Teatrali Cagliari, Italy; MOVIMENTOS Braunschweig, Germany); University Master Programs (Master MADIS Accademia Nazionale di Danza, Rome, Italy; Shanghai Fudan University, Shanghai, China; Shanghai Normal University, Shanghai, China).

The class and the approach to movement are always adapted to the level and background of the participants, with the aim of creating exchange and mutual inspiration from both side.

General principals

The first part of every class consists of a dance warm-up with a first session of guided improvisation and a second session in which participants learn standing and floor movement sequences.

Body and mind are involved in learning a very specific quality of movement. The awareness of body weight, of different impulses that initiate movement, provoking passive reactions in the rest of the body, are fundamental principals applied, through the class, to different exercises and choreographic combinations, individual and with a partner.

The class, starting from a very physical approach, eventually opens up the possibility of working also on theatricality and, depending on the workshop structure,  on the “construction of characters”.

It is a natural consequence of this process to enter into the “problem”, thought as an opportunity to create limitations in the movement and, therefore, as an opportunity to create an extremely specific vocabulary that becomes a distinctive aspect of the character. The work is focused and individual, leaving space for each participant to construct and elaborate their own vocabulary through a guided choreographic composition process.
