Lea Švejdová, who won the prize for “Best Czech Dancer” in 2006 will together with the violoncellist Anna Štěpánová introduce her morning practice at Tanzquartier Wien for the first time:
“In our morning practice we are going to concentrate on how to prepare technically but also emotionally for the rest of the day. The class is going to have usual structure full of dance phrases with emphasis on different qualities and dynamics.
To harmonize our body and mind we will get big support from young violoncellist Anna Štěpánová. She is going to share her musicality and feelings and will lead us through the class and to open our romantic hearts and souls.
How to work soft and gentle but stay powerful?
How to open our body, our cells through the music?
How to respect phrasing, but feel free in it?
How to listen to the melodies, feel them and share them with other dancers and space around me?
We will try to answer those questions for ourselves or maybe the answers will stay floating together with the sound of violin.”
This training is for dancers who have completed dance education.
