In this workshop, some urban dance styles will be taught, such as Hip Hop Dance and Waving.
Through technical exercises, interaction games and composition, the class will be developed based on the concepts of autonomy and collaboration among the participants.
These concepts are part of the process of creating the show Toque.
For beginners, the interest will be in experimenting some dance forms from the Urban Dances ensemble.
For professionals, experiencing collaborative teaching processes can be enriching.
For both, mixing and contaminating one another can be the key to a pleasurable exchange.
