About the Workshop Urban Contemporary

this workshop is focused on Urban/Contemporary techniques like improvisation, musicality, stamina, and the challenge to search for your own creativity. Dancers in the workshop are challenged to visit different tasks, musicality, creativity, and different aspects of the contemporary and urban dance styles in which the main directions are individuality and expression. To dive deeper into the language, Emma will teach repertoire from various projects and work on new material with the dancers,  applying her creation methods.
