Masterclass with Germaine Acogny

PACE3, De Montfort University

Germaine Acogny

 

A unique introduction to the Germaine Acogny technique by the creator herself. ‘An African Dance of modern expression’, Germaine Acogny’s technique has grown out of a knowledge of West African traditional dances, whilst incorporating influences of Western dance styles. Focusing on the work of the spine and improvisation, movements are based on three elements: undulation, contraction, vibration. Through the class participants will discover their own style transforming traditional dances into contemporary expression and forms, open up to African dance, its richness, power and strength to use it as a new source of inspiration.
