Modern Intermediate

Instructor: Jure Masten
Age: teenagers, adults
Time: Monday, 16.40 - 18.10 and
Thursday, 18.20 - 19.50, Hall 4

Dancers discover modern and jazz dance, where they meet somewhat more demanding elements, deriving from modern and jazz styles, along with techniques from other genres. Through different music rhythms, the dancer's own creativity, playfulness and dance expression that come from dancer's imagination and interpretation are included. Dancers gain control over their own body and knowledge that can be used in later dance education. Moreover, dancers learn how to behave on stage in front of an audience, improve their public performances, gain self-confidence and learn how to function in a group as well as gain important life experience.

Modern Advanced

Instructor: Jure Masten
Age: teenagers, adults

This workshop is intended for dancers aged 15 or more, who have learned various dance techniques (ballet is desired) and have been dancing for some years. The workshop encourages dancers to explore their sentience, emotions, and perception by which they develop their moves and routines as well as their own dance style. At these workshops dancers no longer have to follow strict code of varied dancing techniques instead they connect codes and forms of different dancing techniques to an individual mosaic of varied styles.
Trainings begin with a warm up and stretching, followed by different exercises that strengthen the body and improve technique, followed by exercises through space where coordination is being tested, finished by creating sequences and choreographies that are presented at different performances.
