MASTER CLASS  - The Speaking Body

Sharon Vazanna's work extends beyond the stage through Workshops, Master Classes, Residencies and Commissions by bringing her creative process and her Dance Pedagogy to schools and dance companies in Israel and abroad.

Teaching Concept 

After a long and rewarding dance career in Europe and in Israel, Sharon is engaged for the last twelve years in choreography and in teaching.

 

As a creative artist I wish to work with dancers who have diverse creative and personal qualities side by side with advanced physical capabilities and technical proficiency. In my work with young artists, I strive to develop in them these very qualities. As teacher of contemporary dance I believe that my task is to develop in my students not only their physical and expressive capabilities but also their personalities and individuality. As a teacher I try to equip them with a variety of tools which will enhance them as dancers and enable them to engage in a professional career with independent choreographers, in professional dance companies, or in any other direction they wish to take in the field.

The Master Class

The class will start with a contemporary technique class and will be followed by a study of material from the current repertoire.

We will examine the relationships between different body parts, work on isolations of body parts influenced by gravity, weight and space. We will analyse the dynamics of a movement and look into movement patterns. 

We will give attention to musicality, rhythmic precision and the quality of each and every movement.

 

The second part of the class is a study of sections from the current repertoire including internalising layers of the creative background of the work, its character and its emotional and psychological motives.
