Vertical Dance Summer Intensive, Sept 12th-15th

Join myself (Lindsey Butcher) and Kate Lawrence for an exciting 4-day intensive in Brighton at the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts responding to the unique, unusual architecture and surroundings of this Grade 2 listed building.

Each morning we’ll work through vertical dance vocabulary with an emphasis placed on alignment, technique and spatial awareness, building throughout the week towards more dynamic vocabulary.

Afternoon sessions will focus on guided improvisations into creative play looking at spatial relationships, and exploring the available potential between floor, air and landscape working in solos, duets and groups.

Pre-requisites for attending the course: You must have previously attended a vertical dance course or have significant single point harness experience on the wall.

Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts or ACCA is set within the University of Sussex grounds, statistically the sunniest campus (allegedly), on the edge of the South Downs National Park with the bright lights of Brighton just 10 mins away.

Course Costs: £320 for 4 days.

Dates: Sept 12th – 15th inclusive, 10 – 4.30 (weather and bodies permitting).
