Workshop für alle Levels – für Jugendliche & Erwachsene
BodyParkour is an urban art and dance related form of movements. Akos created this word combination out of the word body and the street art form Parkour. Influences of this particular style are: Animal & Baby-hood movements, Yoga, Parkour, Tricking and Breaking, Capoeira, MMA (mixed martial art) and the New Circus, but most of all Contemporary Dance.
During the workshop we will make specific movements to prepare ourselves for the physical motions, creating movement & dance combinations, some small body-stunt moves and easy & fluid acrobatic dance movements. The movement quality has a touch of reference to our great comic action hero Jacky Chan. We will also use our body as an obstacle.
