CDTeens Winter Workshop 8/9 July


This workshop will focus on the relationship between sound and movement. Participants will explore complementary dance and music concepts such as tempo and dynamic, and how these can be used together. They will explore the differences between dance led by music, and music led by dance, and the relationship between dancers /choreographers and musicians /composers. Participants will also create their own percussion-based music and their own short dances, with a focus on connecting movements and sounds.
