Half Term training days
Stopgap are holding two different training and development days in October Half-Term
Responsive Dance Practice Training
Wednesday 29 October 2014 at the Vineyard Centre, Farnham
Cost: £75 (Earlybird) £90 (after 10 October)
Led by Stopgap’s senior dance artist, Laura Jones, this one-day intensive training session will focus on responsive dance teaching for community dance artists and educators.
Stopgap will share useful tools and theories behind responsive dance teaching and encourage participants to find a sense of curiosity, creativity and play when teaching people with different bodies or different ways of learning.
Developing Diverse Dance Talent
Thursday 30 October 2014 at the Vineyard Centre, Farnham
Cost: £60 (Earlybird) £80 (after 10 October)
Stopgap has been contemplating the wealth of homegrown talent within the company. We have begun to ask ourselves what has worked and how we can share our methods so more disabled dancers can realise their potential as professionals.
The day will involve a blend of group discussion and practical exercises, particularly exploring the skills a great dance artist needs and how to interweave those skills into dance training using Stopgap’s inclusive methods.
Join us for an insight into how Stopgap has developed talented disabled dancers to become professional dance artists, choreographers and advocates.
