Years: 7-12 ab [intra] Creative Workshop
‘Students will be guided through a contemporary technique warm up, learn ab [intra] repertoire and be led through composition tasks utilised by Rafael Bonachela and the company dancers to create ab [intra] production. Students will be challenged to think innovatively and generate movements unfamiliar to them, developing their own movement vocabulary and creative expression.’
Years: 3-6 Introduction to Contemporary Dance Workshop
‘Primary school students will delight as they learn the foundations of contemporary dance. Designed to complement the teaching and learning taking place in schools, students will learn the elements of dance as they are guided through contemporary dance and ballet phrases as well as compositional tasks to assist them in generating, developing and structuring their own unique movement.’
