Konstantin Keykhel’s master-class will consist of four parts. During the warm-up participants will focus on breathing and working with the core to carefully prepare the body for the main practice. The second part will look into the basic principles of working with one’s own body as well as with a partner. The third part will be devoted to working with space and cross-trainings. During the fourth and final part, participants will be given tasks to train their memory and imagination, work with particular dance elements and improvise.
