What is Combat Dance?
Combat Dance is a perpetually evolving reference system. It is an archive of information compiled by hybridising information from multiple movement practices and creates a bridge between movement practice, theory, spirituality and critical educational approach. As a movement practice, it focuses on finding the hidden connections between inner and outer space.
Combat Dance offers a high complexity of combinations, high physical challenges, and an emphasis on speed, dynamics, and risks. As a movement practice it is used majorly as a tool for partner dancing, dance battles, instant compositions and self defence.
