Most recent workshops include Henley College, Theale Green Community School, Eynsham Primary School, Whitney, Oxfordshire, Falkland Primary School, Newbury, Downsway Primary School, Tilehurst, The Hill Primary School, Reading and Whitelands Park Primary School Thatcham.
Workshop for Primary Schools is aimed at giving participants an insight into using hand and body gestures to tell a story or express a theme. The themes are usually inspired by nature or an everyday activity expressed in dance form. It also gives beginners, an introduction to the simple rhythm cycle, a basic footwork pattern and a brief introduction into the history and background of the dance form. The participants are invited to try out there new learnt skills at the end of workshop. The workshop can last from anywhere between 45mins to an hour with maximum 25 participants in a batch.
Workshop for Secondary students and proffesional dancers is a full day or half day intensive workshops covering both the technical and the narrative aspect of the dance. The emphasis is on the understanding of rhythm patterns and the best use of bodyline in combination with hand eye co-ordination.
