Contemporary Workshop by Jill Crovisier

Having a deep appreciation and passion for the craft of retransmission, the graduate dance teacher Jill Crovisier has been active for the past 10 years offering high quality dance
education and dance therapy workshops around the globe. From young children in distress to professional company dancers, she has the experience to adapt her format of approaching
dance to the participants.

For the workshops designed for non-professional dancers and beginners, Jill offers a dance workshop that allows the participant to get a general approach into dance. It’s a journey of discovery and the connection through a new language of the body and the mind. During the workshop the participant will warm up her/his body, her/his self-awareness in space, her/his connection to music and learn to surpass herself.

The class is based on improvisation, the use of different techniques and structured exercises. Working on the JC
movement, a personalized choreography signature, the workshop allows the dancer to discover some knowledge of it while keeping the importance of individuality. The dancers might learn a short phrase of a JC movement repertoire work depending on the development and personal need of the participants during the workshop.
Jill is convinced that dance should be accessible to everyone and therefore she will be able to adapt her propositions to the level of the participants. It’s not about technique neither about level, it’s about the freedom of expression and the purity of movement.
