AcroYoga is a new and very creative practice that combines the grounding of an individual yoga practice with acrobatic elements accessible to a wide range of people. AcroYoga requires working with a partner and often with a group, so essentially it is a fun practice that builds not only strength, creativity and agility but also on an understanding of trust.
Maša is a certified yoga and AcroYoga teacher from Croatia living in Luxembourg, who is keen on discovering new ways of movement. Matthias is an experienced yoga teacher from Münster, Germany. Together with his acrobatic partners, he enjoys to co-create moves and flows from the basic ingredients of AcroYoga: playfulness and trust. Both Maša and Matthias have been teaching AcroYoga classes at Last Summer Dance in 2015, and are looking forward to joining us again this year!
AUTHENTIC MOVEMENT [MP]
In this dance workshop, the focus is on the perception of our own body, on improvisation and on the exchange in couples or in a group. Embedded in a safe place free of judgment, we will take the time to feel our body, to move without restriction and to express the experiences we make while dancing in images and words.
For adults with movement experience, who would like to embark on a moving journey into an impro-method that may involve closed eyes, and music-less silence!
DIY: BEAN-BALLS [CELL]
Make your own bean-balls in 5 minutes and have fun to learn how to juggle – or master some new tricks!
Capoeira Angola is the oldest and most genuine form of Capoeira. Its origins date back to the time of the African slave trade to Brazil. During their struggle for freedom, the slaves developed a technique of fighting hidden in a mystic dance. Capoeira Angola combines elements of music, dance, theatre and philosophy in a seemingly malicious yet playful game! Capoeira is inherently a powerful tool for social change. Its foundations rest upon notions of respect, camaraderie and collectiveness. Be part of it @ Last Summer Dance 2016.
