Workshop leadership: The dance workshop will be led by Hannah Dewor and Karoline Hinkfoth. Hannah is a trained contemporary and modern stage dancer and received a Masters in Contemporary Dance Education. She has been working regularly with mixed ability groups since 2012, including the so-called Ensemble Barefeet.
Her dance practice is informed by a keen interest in musicality, rhythm and the idea of 'listening' to movement. Karoline is a wheelchair user, a positive psychology coach and is currently completing her Masters in Philosophy. She has been continuing her education in various dance workshops for several years and has been leading dance formats herself since 2021.
 Hannah and Karoline share an interest in recognising different styles of perception and ways of access and understanding them as creative vehicles for dance work.

Feeling the groove in your body and letting it flow into movement, discovering and playfully challenging the movement dimensions of your own body, taking the space as a stage. This contemporary dance workshop invites all interested people from the age of 18 to get to know elements of contemporary dance. We get to know our own range of movement and find our own ways to dance with the body, its possibilities and the principles presented. We consciously play with rhythm, groove and dynamics in movement and thus discover different movement qualities in the body. Groove here means not only the influence of music, but also the body's own inner groove, which is located in our joints. In the course of the workshop, we venture into dance dialogue with other participants and the space, our dance body develops more and more ideas. At the end of each workshop day, the dance studio becomes a stage: a simple movement task allows us to enter into a spontaneous choreography - filled with our favourite discoveries of the workshop. Now or never - awaken the dancer in you!

This is a dance offering for mixed ability groups and invites all people to join in - no matter what their physical abilities or previous experience.

"Body Grooves" in easy language: The workshop is called "Body Grooves". This means something like "the body moves". In the workshop you get to know contemporary dance. All people from the age of 18 can participate. The workshop is for everyone - no matter what your physical abilities are. It is okay if you have not danced before. In the workshop you get to know your body better. What can the body do? How can the body move to the music? We dance individually and together. At the end of the workshop, everyone gets to show what they have learned.
