WDSF DanceSport Academy Workshop 21/03/2012

WDSF Academy Workshop

Conscious Use and Selection of Music is a dance improvisation workshop that opens an insight to music from a perspective of a dancer.

It gives an interesting and fresh way of seeing the relationship between music and dance, providing the fine tools to create and perform dance to music. For beginners up to experts in any dance genre.

The experience of the workshop on Conscious Use and Selection of Music gives participants an excellent base to extrapolate from as they continue researching the proposded concepts, and to connect them with other information.

The workshop enriches participant’s personal artistic development.

The Content

Through theoretical and practical comparison of the parameters (duration, pitch, amplitude, timbre) and elements (rhythm, articulation, dynamics, melody, harmony, instrumentation, texture and ambiance) of music with measurable characteristics of dance (a body in movement, shape of a body and efforts: space, time, force and flow), participants learn to understand what music and dance share and what separates them, learn to physically translate music into dance and to create a dialogue between music and dance.

Form and Implementation

The workshop on Conscious Use and Selection of Music is an open field of exploration and discovery, held in a relaxed atmosphere and led by Ivan Mijacevic. He proposes practical exercises and leads a discussion over a proposed theme. He supports and leads the group as well as each participant individually, and encourages participants to share their opinions.
