The focus will be on dancing and making it fun for the audience.

 

Bring along your ideas for an inspiring and fun packed day.

It is a participatory workshop where we will be looking at everything from an audience perspective.

  • How to optimise your dancing

  • Performance starts & introductions

  • Fun between dances

  • Use of animals (e.g. zebras)

  • Audience interaction and audience joining in finale.

 

In the afternoon, students will be invited to collaborate in composing and trying out a new audience involvement dance.

The workshop will use a simple Adderbury dance but no knowledge of this will be assumed. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes.
