Contemporary at X-Step in Berlin

This dance style developed since the 1960s - integrates everyday life movements and the music uses everyday life sounds. A very well known collective of this time is the Judson Church. Contemporary dance is not the same as modern dance, it is rather a combination and development of various dance techniques.


Contemporary focuses on walking, falling and rolling, which differs from Ballet where you strech the body and strive for weightlessness. Contemporary is close to earth, making the ground your dancing partner.

We teach flowing movements involving conscious breathing in our Contemporary classes at X-Step.

 

Intensice training on the floor makes you minimize wasted energy and focuses on the perception of your joints. You will practice sequences standing in order to improve your reactions, coordination, balance and orientation in space. Expansive movements including falls, and jumps with defying gravity and swinging to follow.

Alicia

Alicia discovered her love of dance at the age of 16, and since then X-Step has become her second home.
She has already given youth courses and taught a workshop on the "Back to the Roots" festival, which gave her a lot of pleasure. She also collaborates on various dance and video projects under the direction of Nelodie Alroth. Currently she is studying sports therapy and prevention in Potsdam.

In her class she would like to pass on her passion to you!
Above all, she is thrilled by the exciting fusion of streetdance and contemporary:
hip hop grooves combined with street dance and contemporary dance.

Look forward to Urban Contemporary!
