Class Description

The contemporary class of Michael Langeneckert combines 30 years working as a professional dancer, choreographer and teacher. Release technique, bodywork, improvisation, conditioning. Detailed warm up through all the layers of the body gives the strong base for the floor work technic, which we work over several shorter and longer phrases across the space. Further on developing the physical intensity and complex movements in space. The main goal of the class is the constant flow of movement and the connection to beats and sounds to support the physical body. This is a technical contemporary dance training. It goes along with the actual tendency of the international contemporary dance scene.
