What participants say:
"... positively intense and exholarating, learning new territories of dance was a great way to progress the control I am striving for over my body. The relaxed but focused teaching style gave us a very effective environment to work in."
"...physically and mentally challenging from the outset. You've really pushed us to challenge our limits and it is rewarding to see what some of us had acomplished by the end of the workshop."
"A really great wealth of knowledge and passion … keep doing these workshops."

This Floorwork Intensive is a fully loaded 'toolbox event' with serious bang for buck learning - Looking at Floorwork from all angles.
We have run floorwork events in the past and focused purely on the movement but we wanted to improve the learning outcome and offer something unique – pushing the learning past the moves and creativity and addressing the work that supports the end goal – Moving like a boss into and away from the floor.
The day will cover:
A full class addressing technical components that have been developed of the years of delivering floorwork intensives. This class adheres to a familiar class structure allowing quick translation of skills and a familiar place for learning to grow from.
Anatomy: areas of focus:
We always find there are some physical challenges when learning or improving new skills, so we will be addressing specific anatomical areas to understand personal limitations and what to work on to reduce them.
When learning new movements or developing well established vocabulary, specific conditioning elements are often left out, leaving us to struggle with the aesthetic before we have the neuromuscular capability to facilitate our desired movement ambition.
Although we are superhuman in our movement ability we are still bound by the same forces as everyone else. By understanding what holds us back, and down, we can challenge these universal forces and maybe even use then to our advantage!
Movement and tricks:
Once we have a better understanding of our selves and the forces around us we can address the big exciting moves from a more educated place – finding more power, stability and time.
There is mroe than one way to fly, roll, dive, and land so we must explore.
At the end of the day we are all dancers, so we must do exactally that... Dance!
This Floorwork Intensive is suitsble for all pro dancers, teachers, and students (3rd year +) with a good level of movement training.
This Event will be being filmed for documentation and publicity purposes.
