Contemporary class by Sharon Vazanna
MASTER CLASS - Body in Dance
Sharon Vazanna's work extends beyond the stage through Workshops, Master Classes, Residencies and Commissions by bringing her creative process and her technique to classes in schools and dance companies in Israel and abroad.
About the master classes:
The class will start with a contemporary technique class and will be followed by a study of movements from the current repertoire. In the technique class we will focus on the anatomical structure of the body, isolations and separations of body parts and the relationship between them.
We will examine the relationships of different body parts and movements influenced by gravity and weight, space and the dynamics of a movement and its patterns.
Attention is given 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.

The class is a contemporary technique class for professional dancers.
In the class we will focus on the anatomical structure of the body, isolations and separations of body parts and the relationship between them. We will examine the relationships between different body parts and movements influenced by gravity, weight and space as well as the dynamics of a movement and its patterns. Attention is given to musicality, rhythmic precision and the quality of each and every movement.
The goal is to connect with the body - our most prized tool - and prepare it for the dancer’s work day.
