When: May 15-19th 2017| 10:30 am to 3pm

Deadline for application: 14 May

Improvisation sessions are an opportunity to fully engage in our own creative practices. Students will learn how to redirect tools and knowledge to investigate and discover new modes of moving and performing which are both exciting and challenging. We will research in how to spontaneously and creatively respond to these tools as an individual, but also in a partnering or group setting.

I teach and train dancers for: technical functionality, creative instinct, high performance, and transformation.

This workshop will be structured in 90 minutes technique class and 2 hours and 45 minutes improvisation practice.
