FreeDance is the Nia Technique's 8-stage approach to stimulating movement creativity. Freewriting is a timeless method for accessing the inner-voice and witnessing your own creative impulses and impressions, free from judgement. In this workshop we'll explore the 'coupling effect' of movement and writing: we'll move to stimulate the creative source within, and we'll write together using simple prompts to connect, express, and capture the 'a-ha moments' that arise from self-guided movement.

A dance event like no other!! E-Motion is movement for everyone - incorporating a wide variety of techniques that all different genres of dance can learn from. Whether you dance Modern, Jazz, Belly Dance, ATS, Fusion or any other style.... this workshop is for you!

Carsten Lumière Sasse is a contemporary performer and choreographer based out of Austria, and has taught workshops in his signature style at events all over Europe. This is his first time teaching here in the States, you don't want to miss out on this wonderful opportunity!"


Plus we will have a Special Guest Teacher, Elisheva, of the NYC dance company Belly Queen. She will be offering her unique fusion style in a special workshop called "Fluid, Fierce and Funky" - Contemporary and Middle Eastern dance will join in a harmony of dynamic drills, combos, and phrases of expression. Visit her Facebook page.

Pre-Registration is required - limited space!
Workshops in NYC, Boston and Maine.

E-MOTION:

Throughout the years Carsten “Lumière” created his personal dance style which he calls e-motion. The originality of a movement and the feeling which is attached to it were always the two most important components for him when looking at dance and creating it himself.

In Carsten’s style modern, contemporary and jazz elements work in a harmonious fusion together. He prefers working with Limón principles and laws of gravity as well as with the breath and organic material.

Carstens’s motion language impresses through clarity as well as through always surprising choreographic inspirations, embedded in an incomparable emotional density.

"FLUID FIERCE AND FUNKY"

Have you always wanted to have more power, grace, variety and strength in your fusion? This workshop will walk you through some of the endless creative possibilities we have in our bodies when we have the right tools and know how.

Exploring the idea of Modern Fusion Bellydance, you will be learning drills and combinations that are fusions of contemporary (modern) dance and hip hops 'liquid' technique creating visually stunning shapes and super high energy movements. We will learn a full choreography through class drills and exploration. Movement incorporates use of smooth transitions, explosive and dramatic dynamics into your dancing. Workshop level is INT/ADV, but ALL levels are encouraged and welcome to join.
