Deep body awakening in the morning thanks to original warm-up exercises to enhance body availability and prepare to move. After a short break, standing step sequences to enter the movement where rhythm and space notions will be addressed. In the afternoon, with instructions and small sequences we will approach improvisation with its multiples aspects. We will develop listening quality and group energy flow. We will look for music and dance interaction. This will naturally lead us to composition with musicians. This work will allow us to prepare without any constraint a short presentation at the end of the week, this peak of the week will be followed by a friendly 'jam' with Marelles audience.
