super / workshop

this workshop intends to help you explore, develop and bring super skills to the surface, both as an individual and as a team. what are my personal super skills? how do i discover them? how do i bring them to the surface? how do i communicate with other super dancers who have super skills? super uses contemporary dance techniques fused with my own personal style, including acrobatics, hip hop, break dance, yoga, pilates, and martial arts. we will pay special attention to the warm-up, bringing awareness to our bodies through breathing techniques, strengthening exercises as well as stretching to prepare ourselves not only to be super, but to reach super limits and beyond! we will work on multiple physical planes which will ready our body and sharpen our minds to quickly change direction and/or levels at anytime, anywhere. we will explore all your super potential in terms of stamina, flexibility, alertness and awareness so that a good result may be produced both individually and through the co-existence of our group. we all have the chance to broaden our perspectives and movement style by exploring different tastes, flares and new approaches. with respect and intelligent analysis, we will shake apart our mental and physical limitations! we will dig deep to find the confidence to believe in ourselves, and i will be with you - close to you with every move. let us transform our existing selves and get superfresh! this workshop is both technical and theoretical.

some workshops offer group improvisation or partnering. these workshops elements may or may not be possible and the teachers and choreographers will modify their workshops accordingly in line with the health and safety measures required at the time. please stay flexible. thank you!
