Master Classes with Blenard Azizaj
Fee: 85€ / 70€ Early-Bird (until June 20st)
Blenard’s teaching deals with the transformation of movement and the building of deep dance vocabularies that derive from a conscious stepping out of our comfort zones. The parameters dynamics, sharpness and speed are therefore our main concern. In this way, the work aims to unveil and bring forward those unique features of our dancing personalities, which often remain deeply hidden.
Blenard Azizaj left his native country Albania at the age of 17, he graduated from the State School for Orchestral Art in Athens and participated as a dancer in the Hellenic Dance Company, the Akram Khan Dance Company and the Sasha Waltz Company and Guests in Berlin where he is currently based.
