The workshop will not be feasible on site due to the Corona pandemic and will be offered via Zoom. Registration to workshop@hellerau.orgis requested. After your registration we will send you an access link to the ArtRose Zoom meeting.

Movement and dance for the young at heart over 60. Participation encouraged, watching allowed. No previous experience or physical requirements necessary – just a desire and a good mood. The 60+ community dance ensemble called ArtRose and HELLERAU regularly invite you to get to know movement and dance without physical limits.

The vitality and expressiveness of mature age is celebrated in this workshop. A focus aims to draw attention to sensory perception and kinaesthetic feedback in a way that encourages joy and playfulness. Mediation strategies are guided by exploratory movement tasks and dance ‘improvisation scores’, with the idea of opening up space for personal feeling and interpretation. This way, the worry of ‘not getting it right’ does not even arise. Dancing is based on individual and contextual freedom of choice, and demands focused attention, presence and curiosity from the practitioner. Everyone is welcome. The aim is to create an atmosphere in which everyone has the feeling that we are dancing together, while still respecting the precepts of social distancing.
