Fusion of modern contemporary dance and urban dance

I'm teaching at the Bachelor in College of Higher Education and Training (B Chet)​ (in german dipl. Bühnentänzerin HF).
The emphasis of this study course lies on the education of stage dancers that are able to express themselves through the contemporary and urban dance language and know how to move and act interdisciplinary according to its rules.

Some member of the teacher's staff with the approval and support of the artistic direction had the desire to deepen the dialogue and eventually the fusion between contemporary and urban dance. We started a research laboratory with the aim to share this experience to the students of the school without limiting ourselves to teach our own technique.

I'm interested to know if some of the IDOCDE's teacher are involved with the same research. it would help us to share with you informations and experiences about this fusion.

If you want to know more about it this is the link: http://www.hf-buehnentanz.ch/en/inhalt/study

I'm looking forward to get in touch with you.

Hi Marco! Im involve with research about this fusion since some years....and still in develop...always change depend the people involve, the experience and how open they are to search more then just a movement in the sport way....is a deep searching, I used to work a lot with Physical Theater in function of the dancers, or composition about stage to give some tools differents and help to the interprete (dancer) to found the own way to express.
