The personal choice of Egle Ukanyte contemporary dance is based on research around the body as the fulcrum of the creative process.

Workshops take elements from different somatic techniques, improvisation and contemporary dance. The first part of the class goes deeper into breathing forms and how to give direction and form to the body.

Full concentration is a tool for understanding your body and dynamics and using the different levels of moving, gives an opportunity to improvise and develop a dancer’s own material.

Egle searches for connections with people and space around, constantly challenging herself and others. During the creativity process she is looking for different ways of moving / performing opening up the senses.
