Dancing outside the box
For us at IG Hop, interdisciplinary exchange among different art forms and styles is not only beneficial but actually essential for creative production.
This goes especially for the dance styles of Authentic Jazz, seeing that they ever since their first emergence they reflect a great number of influences throughout their entire development. Inspiration from the most varied dance forms and styles are a fundamental part of the everyday practice.
It is this type of collaboration which the IG Hop wants to give room for with this new workshop-format:
One Saturday afternoon a month we offer the possibility to collect new movement-material and exciting ideas for a more creative and more inspired dance life.
For those Inspirational Saturday workshops we invite professionals from different sectors of the dance world which are interesting for Authentic Jazz dancing to help the participants dive into new ways of expressing rhythm, moving bodies and experiencing music.
Body percussion, Vogueing and Housedance are just the beginning of a long list of danceable artforms which can applied productively in Jazz dancing.
