What a fun learning experience this summer for our adults as we were exposed to different teachers and different styles. From fast moving choreography in Rachel’s contemporary workshop, to the Malay inspired creativity in Sharul’s contemporary workshop; Ahilya’s contemporary workshop opened our eyes and bodies to a different way to experience and initiate movement influenced by her training in Gaga’s movement language, and Ruimin’s Oriental contemporary workshop taught us the meaning and intention behind each movement founded in Chinese Dance principles. In Alessandra’s Dance Theatre workshop, participants blended movement and music to tell a story without words.
From our youngest kids who enjoyed a 3 day Disney camp focused on dance/movement, rhythm & musicality and some themed-related arts & crafts. Kids had a wonderful time moving and stomping to the tunes from Beauty & the Beast, Tarzan and The Lion King. Song & Dance workshops filled with expression and music, Commercial style street/jazz workhops where kids and teens learnt how to be show-ready! A real popular workshop was our Contemporary, Jazz and Street workshops where we took all of Britney’s best tracts to create a wow factor mash up! A summer full of creativity, energy and fun!
