Three action-packed days
of colliding technique development
with improvisation tools
and performance happenings
with Adam Wheeler.
Each morning will begin with warming up the body, the mind and senses to create space to develop contemporary dance technique of understanding how individual bodies move, releasing in and out of the floor and advancing sequential pathways through the body.
The afternoons will be dedicated to using the skills learnt in the morning to express yourself as a dance artist through inclusive, non-threatening improvisation practice and performance knowledge.
Dancers wishing to pursue a career in dance will gain expert knowledge and skills transferrable across all genres and styles.
