Workshop @ EUMDS

Wednesday February 20th, 17:30-19:30 @ Teviot Debating Hall

I will be heading to Scotland to teach a workshop for the Edinburgh University Modern Dance Society!

MY class is a highly physical contemporary class which emphasises engaging the brain in order to trust the body. Through coordination, partnering, and improvisation exercises, we attempt to ‘fry’ our brains in order to let go and be present in the moment. We then apply this to structured phrases filled with quirky gestures and expansive floorwork to find freedom and fun in our dancing.
