Workshop 1 with Ozgen
How to make those "spot on" choreographies? Ozgen will be teaching the theory and technique behind creating powerful choreographies. He will focus on understanding of the relationship between musicality (the feeling and deep details of the music) with your movements. Please note that the workshop will be assisted by Ozgen, but you will also work collectively and creatively with the other workshop attendees. Feel free to bring pen and paper to take some notes.
Workshop 2 with Mayel
Mayel will teach a new and original piece of choreography of Lyrical Oriental in which you will learn how to give meaning and feelings to your dancing and how to tell a story through your movements.
