From Sun 15th – Sun 22nd April 2018 we will be running a week long residency aimed at professional, semi professional and degree stage dancers. Based in the truly magical Couserans Pyrénées, you will find space and time to reflect, form new ideas, escape the noise of the city and to connect with nature – a rare opportunity for professional dancers in the rush from rehearsals to theatre.
The course comprises 6 days of yoga, dance and choreography lead by four talented professional teachers – Lewis Wilkins, Matt Cleary, Anders Duckworth and Joelle Green. With places limited to just 16 dancers (including 4 non-residential places) an intensive learning experience is assured.
Each day will start with an hour of yoga, followed by three 90 minutes classes with a break for lunch. The classes will offer the opportunity to improve technique, collaborate and to explore new ways of movement and expression. This will culminate in new pieces of choreography which will form part of a larger performance open to the public on the final evening.
The price of the residential course is £435 (485 euros) inclusive of transfers from Toulouse Blagnac Airport, gite accommodation and all meals. 4 non-residential places are also being offered to local dancers of suitable ability/experience who are able to travel each day to the venue. The price of the non-residential course is 200 euros.
