Body & Performance Practices

Body & Performance Practices – formerly known as Training & Workshops – is not only open to all local dance and performance professionals. Artists from other disciplines, enthusiasts, and amateurs are welcome to join. This training concept expands how dance and performance can help us see and explore different forms of knowledge, generating a unique place for contemporary artistic and methodical discourse. An active area of possibilities to experiment, analyse, research, dream, discuss, take risks, realise, construct and deconstruct.


We are pleased to introduce a new Body & Performance Practices programme structure from 18 September onwards. Each day, starting at 9.30, there will be a varying morning training (Mon: Ballet Techniques; Tue: Feldenkrais Method as Creative Process; Wed: Yamuna Pilates; Thu: Yoga for Dancers; Fri: Tai Ki Kung). This will be followed by a morning practice at 11.30. Afternoons remain reserved for workshops, evening practices and the Atelier format.
