Aeris Körper values and emphasizes personal expression and creative movement: the artist. The training will exemplify this value and focus on growing the students’ artistry, imagination, and the connection with one another. The classes draw from ideas found in contemporary and modern dance techniques, dance improvisation, and even a little bit of ballet in the mixture.

The core of our philosophy at Aeris Körper is accepting people of all abilities and ages. We instruct beginners to the professional dancer; encompassing different styles of Modern and Contemporary Dance.

Our program will give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in physical training, explore new contemporary dance techniques, and develop your creativity and imagination. You will meet new people and get in a great workout while you're at it!

The day will be structured as follows:

Afternoon - choreography; taught by professional contemporary choreographers and dance artists, you will explore and learn new collaborative choreography by Aeris Körper

The week will conclude with an informal in-studio performance.
