DANCE WORKSHOPS FOR SCHOOL

.

Workshop with choreographer

Circuit-Est offers workshops to school groups to discover contemporary dance with a choreographer collaborating with the organization. The content of the workshops depends on the choreographer and the age of the participants, but they usually include a warm-up period, improvisation exercises, short choreographic phrases and conclude with a sharing with the choreographer. In addition to an introduction to contemporary dance, participants will be able to discover a creative beacon of Montreal’s dance scene as well as meeting cultural and artistic professionals. It is possible to customize the workshop according to the needs and interests of the group. The maximum number of participants is 30.

Location: Studio Peter-Boneham, 2022 Sherbrooke East Street
Duration: ± 1 h 30
Cost: $350

Light workshop

By introducing different lighting concepts and through practical exercises, this workshop aims to make participants discover how light affects the perception of the spectator, the dancer and the choreographer. Participants will be invited to experiment the influence of different types of lighting on our perception while on stage: hot / cold, front, back or side, up and down, open or closed space . What happens when the floor disappears? When the space around us disappears? Walking or standing on one foot suddenly becomes challenging. The duration of this workshop is approximately an hour and a half, depending on the different groups (age, number). A warm-up time and playing period in the space will also be offered. As the studio is very busy, it is necessary to book as soon as possible. The maximum number of participants is 25.

Location: Studio Jeanne-Renaud, 2022 Sherbrooke East Street
