“Body Awareness Training”

As a choreographer and as a teacher, Reischl has educational experience. He teaches ballet for professional companies and academies and has developed a workshop method, which is called “Body Awareness Training”. In a series of lectures to students in schools, universities and other events he uses his experience and knowledge in the art form to create a dialogue about dance.

“Of the dance styles conveyed to me by different choreographers, it was improvisation, in particular, that awakened my interest. Working with William Forsythe has enabled me to see my body as an instrument and employ it as such consciously, no matter what style I am working in. My workshop deals with the body in space and time and includes exercises designed to foster participants’ awareness of their own bodies, coordination, and personal interpretations. In addition to highly concrete concentration exercises, training can include scene sequences and group exercises. In this workshop I am searching to create an atmosphere to explore the understanding of movement principles.”

“Classical Ballet”

Ballet class has been always something very important to me. In companies that I have worked for as dancer, I expected a great warm-up in the morning and a class that allows me to improve my skills and to get coordination, dynamics and mind ready for the day. An uplifting, joyful approach to something very complex and technical. In my class, I am trying to do exactly that. I offer a class that is focused on movement, dynamics and “Epaulement” but also on decision-making, performance and pure JOY of dancing.
