African New Year Dance Workshop
NILE journeys, Nurturing Impulses for Living Ecosystems, will welcome 2023 with its African New Year Dance Workshop for dancers of all skill levels. The workshop will focus on movements and dance principles inspired by African music and philosophy.
Exploring African Art and Philosophy
Through African Contemporary Dance and Movement Medicine, NILE journeys will explore our inner landscape in this immersive workshop. Participants will dance and get to know various dance resources through the wisdom of the moving bodies. In rhythm with the elements and forces of nature, they will dance with dreams into the New Year 2023 by the Nile River.
The workshop will introduce two lessons:
- African Contemporary Dance Technique: African rhythms, aesthetics and movement sequences with contemporary forms of expression.
- Movement Medicine: Explores dance as a resource for life, includes dance improvisation and free expression.
