In the Weiss-Mann module dancers will learn the technique created and developed by Heidi Weiss & Jennifer Mann. Its roots lie deep within the traditional modern dance traditions.

Fall and recovery, rebound, use of weight, spirals in the back, linear movements, contraction/release are all present in this technique, although not as rigid as in the traditional forms. The forms are broken with released approach to moving in a more organic flow.

The technique combines strengthening elements with released based exercises which emphasis breath. Directional changes, musicality, use of weight, fusion and fluidity, transitions, are all key elements. Important is for the dancer to find his or her personal way of moving by exploring a balance between ones technical skill with a capacity to flow through space freely.

***This final module gives the participants the chance to make connections between the traditional forms and how they can still be present in a contemporary style. Allowing a clearer understanding of where our roots are and how can continue to educate next generations with these styles.
