Cairo, Egypt | Thursday - 22 September, 2016:

Studio ZAT continues to promote the importance of dance as a contemporary form of art where body, mind and soul are in full harmony within a homogenous movement by organizing a two-day dance improvisation workshop led by French dancer Florence Moutin (Friday, 30 September - Saturday, 1 October). The workshop will start at 12:00 noon until 06:00 pm.

Florence will train the participants on how to improvise dance movements, focus on internal communication, and harmonizing the body with the soul and with nature using a specific sensitive and meditative technique to guide them as they delve into a sensitive form of art that requires simplicity, authenticity, and spontaneity.

The workshop will start off with yoga exercises and body-mind centering tools for warm-up so that the body and mind reach a full state of harmony. Then, it will move on to contemporary dance techniques to connect the body with reality, ending with improvised moves and choreography.
