Description

Summer Intensive Update

Due to the high demand for the Integrated Dance Summer Intensive with Adam Benjamin we are opening an additional strand led by internationally renowned dance maker Fin Walker with universal technique classes taught by Plymouth based choreographer, Clair Beckett.

The international integrated summer school is hosted by Plymouth Dance in Partnership with Plymouth University.

Please direct any booking enquiries to june.gamble@plymouthdance.org.uk

SUMMER INTENSIVE STRAND 2

Join the dancers from Integrated Dance Company-Kyo (Japan) working with Fin Walker and Clair Beckett. These workshops run concurrently with strand 1 and there will be plenty of opportunities for delegates from both Summer Intensives to network and share.

Accessible Technique Class (Days 1, 2 and 5) - Clair Beckett delivers a ‘universal’ dance technique that individually challenges each dancer through a formally structured technique class that uses non-body part specific instruction. This movement technique explores new possibilities within the body through translation of movement. Class involves taught phrases that will be translated by the dancers, improvised structures and yoga.

Delve Deeper (Days 2,3 and 4) - Fin Walker's classes are an opportunity to step into your bodies and inhabit them more fully in the moment of being.

“You will journey deeper into the self to realise your full potential using movement as an entry point and the voice to support the process of 'opening'. You will come into awareness of where you 'hold' in your system and look at how you can get out of your own way for expression to be effortless. Guided improvisation will be used as a tool and a vehicle for our exploration. You will work in pairs, solo and groups to support and reflect back to each other”.
