#Workshop Types

ADC provides a range of workshops to teachers and students in the areas of technique, choreography, improvisation, repertoire, contact duo work and dance and technology.

Contemporary Technique /

Contemporary Technique workshops give your students an opportunity to focus on their alignment, strength and dynamic control, as well as safe floor work and spinal articulation.

Contemporary Repertoire /

Contemporary Repertoire workshops provide students with the opportunity to learn a short piece of choreography from either ADC’s established repertoire or from repertoire currently in development.

Choreography /

Choreography workshops ensure students are taught multiple choreographic methods and skills in order to create their own contemporary dance works.

Contact and Duo /

Contact and duo workshops introduce students to contact improvisation and working collaboratively in pairs. These workshops provide students with the necessary skills to practice and perform contemporary dance in a safe and professional learning environment. These workshops require two ADC teaching artists.

Improvisation /

Improvisation workshops give students tools to improvise in movement and think creatively on the spot.

Dance and Technology /

Dance and Technology tailored workshops focus on the creation of dance for film. Lighting, projection, filming techniques, sound and costuming are covered in these tailored workshops which help students transform their ideas into dance films.

Please note, Dance and Technology workshops are only available via zoom sessions for your students. Travel fees do not apply.
