This workshop will be co-led by Gabbie Cook and Mirabelle Gremaud. Drawing from their training in dance, acrobatics, contorsion and physical theatre, you will be taken through a process over the 5-days to build vocabulary and confidence in the Acro Dance style – building up to improvisation, learning acrodance sequences and guidance on deveising and performance presence.

Where: Accademia Dimitir, Verscio, Switzerland

When: 15th – 19th July

We will start each day with a highly physical training from Mirabelle’s practice. A training focused on coordination, resistance, and building strength through movement which will help you gain confidence and fluidity.

If you already have a level of acrobatics, this will be an opportunity to learn variations, details, precision and add movement quality to your tricks.

In the afternoon, Gabbie will focus on combining technical acrobatics training with dance. We will warm up the rhythms, movement qualities and train the established paths within the floorwork.

The class will build up to longer improvised tasks, working with off-balance, maintaining momentum and redirecting energy. We will learn phrases that combine movement with acrobatics, as well as explore ideas from physical theatre to work on presence and being with the audience.
