Organic Juggling Meets Dance
Five days of dance and juggling with Stefan Sing and Cristiana Casadi
“If you want to juggle better, learn to dance.” – Stefan Sing
This workshop will explore the intrinsic connection between throwing objects and body movement, combining the Organic Juggling techniques of Stefan Sing with the choreographic and rhythmic qualities of contemporary dance, taught by Cristiana Casadio.
Starting the day with training sections in contemporary dance and juggling technique, students will develop a movement repertoire both with and without objects. Later in the day these practices will come together into solo and partnering work focused on developing each student’s natural expressive understanding and how this can enhance the presence of others on stage.
Times: Monday to Friday : 10.00-16.00h
Price: Early bird: 225 – Regular price: 250
