Training &

The Training & Workshops department has been an integral part of TQW from the moment of its inception. It offers excellent further training in the TQW Studios and at the same time acts as a platform for artists to exchange ideas. Daily training sessions at TQW are divided into professional training, open training for everybody and workshops. They comprise a broad spectrum of contemporary dance training and workout as well as ballet for contemporary dancers. Approaches integrating, among other things, somatic, martial arts-inspired, improvisational or voice-related practices complement the varied programme.

The new format TQW Explore blurs the lines between training, performance, research, theory and party. Each time, the audience is invited to participate, to follow and to enter the very specific cosmos of an individual artist or group for an entire week.

FAQ

Advanced or Open Level?

Courses explicitly aimed at dance and performance professionals and/or advanced learners are designated as Advanced Level courses in our schedule.

Some of the training courses and workshops, however, are Open Level events. These are directed at all those interested and do not require any (previous) subject knowledge. Everybody with an urge to dance or move creatively is cordially invited to attend the somatic morning training on Wednesdays from 9.30 to 10.30. In addition various workshops are on offer every month.

Workshops may be Advanced Level or Open Level events.

 

Who holds the training courses and workshops?

The training courses and workshops are held by experienced local and international teachers, artists and the artists-in-residence at TQW.

 

Is there a thematic connection between the training courses and workshops and TQW’s performance programme?

The Training & Workshops department is linked very closely to other areas of TQW. In addition to a more marked orientation towards the ongoing performance programme, various offers from the Education and Theory departments tie up with training courses and workshops, such as, for example, the new, daily shared-reading format LUNCH BOOK in the TQW library.

Open Space

On several days per month, when no training, workshop or rehearsals are scheduled, Studio 1 is available for the dance and performance community. This is TQW’s way of promoting an open, autonomous space to come together, exchange experiences, reflect, try out, train and experiment. Following a do-it-yourself approach, the studio can be used without registration and on one’s own responsibility.

We kindly ask for your conscious attention towards each other and the space.
