Workshop description


Young Boy Dancing Group workshop consists of choreographic instructions with a clear and substantial goal; to be part of a group, to dance together, to embody feelings, to explore a sense of safety in stillness with one another and to produce collective highs. Rather than a series of exercises, the workshop is offered to the participant as an intimate journey with a punk attitude towards modern dance and the possibility to allow ourselves to use vulnerability to dive deep into raw emotions.

The Young Boy Dancing Group workshop provides choreographic guidance with a distinct and meaningful objective: to foster group cohesion, synchronized dancing, emotional expression, a shared sense of security in moments of stillness, and the creation of collective euphoria. Rather than mere exercises, the workshop offers participants an intimate voyage infused with a rebellious spirit towards modern dance, enabling us to embrace vulnerability as a pathway to explore profound, unfiltered emotions.
