JASON JACOBS (Frankfurt a. M.)

Moving through Qualities with Ease

The training focuses on physically understanding which impulses lead us to move with which qualities. A sense of center, groundedness, agility, coordination, & relation to space will be emphasized. By investigating touch & physically reacting to visual images, the relationship between sensation & movement quality will be explored. To begin, awareness & physical ease will be encouraged progressing through interactive tasks and a fluid shifting between self-generated & set movement material.

Jason Jacobs is a choreographer, performer & dance educator. His relationship to movement emphasizes the merging of thinking, reflective processes with physical research. His approach focuses on finding ways to cultivate & apply physical knowledge in artistic processes. He currently creates dance performances in Frankfurt with choreographer Ekaterine Giorgadze as the collaboration MuddyBoots.

From Inside Out

The energetic class passes through various different dynamic stages: from gazing inwards, concentrating on breathing and being mindful of the state of one's own body it shifts to floor work, swings, rolls and stretching, which then intensify into dynamic, complex movement sequences. The class concentrates thereby on shifting body levels and points of focus to develop clarity of movement direction while simultaneously finding a very personal emotional quality of movement.

Fiona Gordon studied dance & choreography at the Laban Centre. As a dancer, she has worked e.g. with Mark Murphy, Rica Blunk, Angela Guerreiro and Jan Pusch. She has been teaching modern dance, improvisation and choreography at the Erika Klütz Schule for many years now and will also be doing so at the CDSH in Hamburg.

Regina Baumgart (Heidelberg)

Ballet for contemporary dancers

The training is designed for dancers, who wish to employ the special technical qualities of ballet in their work. Ballet vocabulary is used as a neutral technique, free from stylistic elements. Important aspects of the work are: sensitive body awareness, alignment, anatomy and awareness of movement approaches. The way in which the exercises are structured allows the dancers to apply these principles and perceive their effects. 

Regina Baumgart received her training from J. Cranko and danced with the Stuttgart Opera Ballet. In New York, she studied e.g. with Merce Cunningham, danced with various companies and worked as a choreographer. She also works as a head trainer, lecturer and teacher for Eutonie G.A. since 1998.
