Hot on the heels of the annual Ausdance Master School, Canberra Dance Theatre has announced a suite of summer workshops and forums.
According to livewire CDT artistic director, Liz Lea, the sessions will cater for experienced dancers who might, for instance, have just finished at the Ausdance School, and also for inexperienced dancers.
Then there’s the “Gold Summer Intensive”, aimed at over 55s wanting to prepare for the June performances at the National Gallery of Australia. Newcomers are welcome to join up.
“Advanced Contemporary” is suitable for dancers who have done classes at the Ausdance ACT Master School and who have reached intermediate standard.
As well, CDT is staging elementary ballet and contemporary classes for anyone wanting to learn the fundamentals or those who just want to enjoy the art of moving.
An exciting option is the African Dance and Drumming Summer School, from February 2 to 3, where tutors, such as Michelle Forman in drumming and Kylee Sharp in dance, teach a range of traditional African dance and drumming styles, dances and pieces, also engaging with African stories and customs.
