Obs! Notera ändringen av lektionstid!   The importance of movement, the freedom and strength in being able to express oneself through dance is essential!  CHARLOTTA ÖFVERHOLM offers Age on Stage workshops for anyone over 60 years old. She has created a unique form of working with movement and creativity no matter your age or who you are. The workshop requires no prior dance experiences and is adjusted after the group, at the same time as it challenges the individual. The workshop is about exploring movements in our own body and how we can express ourselves through it. We work both on a physical level with warm up and exercises as well as on a creative level with improvisations, text and music.

Öfverholm studied at Balettakademien (Gbg), Alvin Ailey ADC (NYC) and is a theatre graduate of UCLA in Film/TV/Video and from The Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute (LA).

Jones, Dwight Rhoden, Viliam Docolomansky, Roberto Galván, Joseph Tmim, Ramon Oller, Robert Poole, Corinne Lanselle, Sharon Friedman, Martin Harriague and Sol Pico as well as Dorte Olesen, Björn Elisson and Alexander Ekman in Stockholm.
