About the Masterclass for professional dancers:

The workshop of WArd/waRD dancer Nik Rajšek and choreographer Ann Van den Broek focuses on the work and movement language of the Flemish choreographer. A language that can be described as dynamic, radical and uncompromising. A dance form that translates emotions and intentions into movement and that greatly exceeds the boundary between dance and performance. During the workshop you’ll work from the choreography of Joy Enjoy Joy with accompanying music. You’ll learn about the specific dance style and methodology with a focus on rhythmic variants, repetition, analyzing movement and its intention.
