Contemporary Dance Workshop

This workshop will begin with a warm up to wake up, activate and engage the whole body. This will lead into a series of creative tasks looking at weight sharing, movement trust exercises and choreographic techniques, expanding awareness of the body in space and exploring the body’s creative movement potential.
