"På mina klasser bygger vi teknik och styrka under uppvärmningen och fokus ligger på funktionalitet.

Jag försöker mer och mer inkorporera mitt PT-tänk i klassupplägget vad gäller övningarnas syfte.

När vi väl kommer till koreografier är fokus på musikalitet, dynamik och dansglädje!"


BIO:


Jacob Walleberg är utbildad dansare på Balettakademiens dansarutbildning i Stockholm samt utbildad PT genom Safe-academy. Jacob har jobbat mest som musikalartist men också bl.a. som showartist på Wallmans i Köpenhamn och två år som modern/jazzdansare i kompaniet Oslo Danse Ensemble.

Helena Franzén

Vecka 3 Modern kl.11.15-12.45

"Helena Franzéns klass är release baserad där medvetenheten om kroppens möjlighet till rörelse står i fokus. Golvövningar och inspiration av yoga är metoder i arbetet med att finna centrering, flexibilitet och styrka. Under klassen ges tid att uppmärksamma olika rörelsekvaliteter, där precision och den egna närvaron är betydelsefull.

Uppvärmningen är en förberedelse för ett längre frasmaterial där dynamik, rumsuppfattning och musikalitet exponeras och tydliggörs. Rumsliga ytterligheter och fysiska risktaganden uppmuntras."

BIO:

Helena Franzén har över 25 års erfarenhet av undervisning. Hon undervisar regelbundet professionella klasser på Danscentrum Stockholm och danskompanier som Norrdans, Skånes Dansteater och Göteborgs operans danskompani. Helena är också regelbundet gästlärare på Kungliga Svenska Balettskolan och Balettakademien i Stockholm där hon ger klasser i repertoar, komposition och improvisation."

I Helena Franzéns arbete sätts den dansande, musikaliska kroppen i fokus. Fysiska funktioner, anatomiska strukturer och dynamiska förlopp är återkommande teman i hennes koreografiska arbete. Hennes verk beskrivs med ord som fysisk intelligens och rörelse poesi med nerv och närvaro- beskrivningar som tydliggör hennes plats i det svenska danslandskapet.

Efter utbildningen på Balettakademien i Stockholm 1986-89 och koreograf utbildningen på Danshögskolan 1996- 98, har Helena Franzen varit verksam som koreograf och dansare i 30 år och koreograferat över 80 verk och har turnerat i Skandinavien, USA, Sydamerika och i Baltikum.

Hon är en eftertraktad lärare och undervisar teknikklasser och repertoar för kompanier i Europa och Skandinavien.

Helena Franzén är hängiven sitt detaljerade rörelsespråk som är laddat med intrikata flöden, gränslösa variationer, explosivitet och poetisk närvaro. Tre kriterier är kännetecknande för hennes arbetssätt.: de rumsliga förutsättningarnas påverkan på koreografin, den täta dialogen med musiken som oftast är specialskriven samt de tekniskt drivna dansarna som är medskapare i arbetsprocessen.

2007 tilldelades Helena Franzén ett tioårigt konstnärsstipendium av Konstnärsnämnden. 2011 fick hon Stockholms stads kulturstipendium.

Helena Franzén tilldelades Svenska Teaterkritikers Förenings Danspris 2011. Med motiveringen: ”Under mer än två decennier har Helena Franzén utforskat och koncentrerat sitt koreografiska uttryck. Envetet och med rörelsen i centrum har hon finputsat och renodlat sitt språk tillsammans med dansarna.”


Philippe Blanchard

INSTÄLLD! /Vecka 4 Contemporary kl. 9.30-11.00 Workshop i samarbete med Dansalliansen 11.15-16.00! Se mera info under workshops.

"A slow and gentle start for the body after it has been at rest overnight. Sensorial and introspective in its’ approach to thoroughly awakening body, mind and creativity.

Focus and time will be dedicated to discovering and moving through a connection to our skeletal structure, and in turn, to our different bodily systems. As participants, you will be guided continuously throughout your exploration."

BIO:

Philippe Blanchard has created both independent and commissioned performances at the forefront of Swedish contemporary dance and the European dance companies for nearly twenty years. His works developing into installation-like studies with skilled performers and untrained performers.

Suggesting rather than telling, Blanchard’s finely layered pieces address the creative potential of each viewer by making room for interpretation, uncertainty and wonder while consistently providing subtle details to rely on. An adventurous artist daring to explore unknown subjects and methods, he develops his expression in a continual process of investigation where every project is bound to its own rules while moving consciously forward from the previous one.

After creating works such as “Airbag”, “Noodles”, “Quiproquo”, “One’s company, “How about you?” which toured in more then 14 countries, Philippe decided to relocated himself in U.K where he created two works ” This is that” and ” There are no such thing such as silly things”.

INSTÄLLD!/ Vecka 5 Contemporary Movement kl. 11.15-12.45

Through shifting of weight, traveling across space and moving into the floor we facilitate how to recognize the body’s weight and using it as a motor to generate momentum. The body’s physical limitations are potentially erased.

Imagination plays a huge part in the work, and by introducing colourful universes the mind is offered the ability to accept such states as failure, play and being lost.

The practice aims to develop a sense of internal awareness which can bring each participant further in their own physical practices and daily life."

Sen kör jag diagonaler med fokus på piruetter, grand battements och hopp. Sedan avslutar jag med koreografi. Gillar att kasta ut mycket material på en gång, lite som en auditionworkshop.

Jag brukar variera musiken mellan olika musikstilar i min klass. Allt från jazz, populärmusik, folkmusik, balettmusik mm.

WORKSHOP “ULTIMA VEZ - WIM VANDEKEYBUS REPERTOIRE” i samarbete med Dansalliansen 11.15-16.00.

Given by EDUARDO TORROJA

"The workshop will focus on the energetic and physical repertoire vocabulary from the first three pieces of Ultima Vez: "What the Body Does Not Remember", "Les Porteuses de Mauvaises Nouvelles" and "The Weight of a Hand".

It is about movement as a theatrical act.

Participants will follow the creation process going from the origins of the material, through the transitions and transformations of the vocabulary, until the final performed results. This vocabulary will also be the starting point to a guided development of the participants' own choreographic work. They will create their compositions through the form, the emotion, the strong theatrical atmosphere and the intention of the proposed material.

We will explore and confront this material through improvisations, floor-work, contact and partner work, group dynamic structures and objects' manipulation. To arrive to this vocabulary participants will work with a wide range of concepts such as: tension, instinct, chaos, sensuality, risk, trust, protection, dependency, power, strategies, neutrality, physical extremes...

Julia Ehrstrand

V. 50 Contemporary Jazz

Class description:

" Julia teaches a contemporary jazz class that utilizes spinal articulations and release techniques, and to find an organic way of moving and at the same time challenge the dancers technique and to find maximum range of movement. It starts with a set technical warm up with elements of floor work, stretch and strength. The warm up flows thru for 45min and then we work on a choreography phrase for the rest of the class. A big focus is for the dancers to find their own interpretation and flow of the movement- to make it feel natural in your body. "

"Med en stark bas i jazzens dynamiska grunder: låg tyngdpunkt, suspension, musikalitet och form har jag byggt upp en klass där du som deltagare ska få möjlighet att arbeta igenom kroppen och få med dig inspiration in i din egen verksamhet, vare sig du undervisar eller är dansare. Klassen innehåller en gedigen uppvärmning med fokus på att bygga upp styrka och flås. Detta följs av förflyttningar över golvet och avslutas med en längre koreografi. Ibland väver jag även in improvisation i klassen med utgångspunkt i ett fysiskt eller musikaliskt utforskande.

Jag är starkt influerad av min samtid och försöker inkorporera flera av jazzens olika stilar och uttryck – utan att för den skull släppa dess tradition."
