This is a 2 month long online live Zoom course for those who want not only to research the dance technique, but also dive deep into the history of dance and ethics of "inspiration", to differentiate between the dance of other artists, other cultures, and your own one. The course consists of experimental-based movement research practice sessions, as well as seminars and discussions on critical issues in dance such as decoloniality of cliched thinking, cultural appropriation and appreciation of world culture dances, etc. You will be given homework: articles to read, movies to watch, dance footage to analyze, as well as guidance to go deep inside yourself, listen to your body and finding your own ways of moving and being creative within the familiar languages of dance.

Welcome to the playground!

Level: open with dance experience, teachers of social dance
