16th Edition Dance Hybrid Malta 2017


Contact Dance Company announces the 16th edition of Dance Hybrid Malta 2017 summer intensive.  An Intensive week of workshops, masterclasses, repertory and choreographic collaboration for professional dancers and dance students age 15+.  With this program, talented students and (pre) professional dancers can enrich their skills and learn innovative approaches towards movement and choreography, focusing on the contemporary dance styles of Kristina and Sade Alleyne (UK). We offer a unique opportunity to meet and train whilst introducing the process behind Alleyne Dance Company’s work.  There will be an informal sharing of the work produced during the weeks intensive, demonstration of classes, repertory and choreographic collaboration, including some guest showcasing performance.  This sharing is supported by the Malta International Arts Fringe Festival 2017.

Course Description:

This is a physical Contemporary Class, which will involve strong, complex and technical sequences in and out of the floor, focusing on performance/stamina and commitment throughout the session, improvisation will also be explored as part of self-development.  The significant factors for the workshop are to develop the dancers’ creative mind, drive from passion, determination, strength, and musicality and most importantly an intention/ honesty in whatever choice they make throughout the session. The style has been inspired and developed from working with the likes of Akram Khan (fusion of Kathak and Contemporary Dance), Retina Dance Company (Release and Contact Work), Gregory Maqoma (Afro-Fusion Dance) and Henri Oguike (Classical Contemporary Dance based on Forsythe and Cunningham techniques).
