Sing, Dance and Play
Sing, Dance and Play class works with styles and music from all over the world. We play rhythm games, learn songs, and try dances from Cuban, African and Brazilian traditions. The subject is both educational and enjoyable for everyone (and especially for dancers and musicians). You will become much stronger at rhythmic expressional and cultural appreciation. Experience the joy of dancing and singing to live music.
Kristian Ravn graduated from the Conservatory of Music in 2003 with a master's in music. He has also completed postgraduate studies in France and with Voice Embodiment. His studies have focused on the close connection between body, mind, emotion and voice. This holistic method encourages his students to use their entire body to sing. This approach incorporates vocal performance and music technicality with body awareness.
Kristian has previously been a vocal teacher and examiner at the Conservatory of Music in Esbjerg as well as a high school teacher at Testrup High School. In addition, he performs as a singer in the band 'Gaderengene'. His Leonard Cohen-inspired and Reumert-nominated performance in Granhøj Dans' has been running successfully since 2010. He hopes that his students discover that the skills learned in music class can continue beyond their hojskole days. Learning about performance, voice skills, and body awareness are important throughout everyone's life.
