Audience Workshop in Baden Baden

 I taught an audience workshop at the Festspielhaus Baden Baden. It was the premiere of Sao Paulo Companhia de Danca. it was a great performance.
 I warmed up the audience for them of course….
An hour before the performance, I talked to hundreds of eager audience members about the difference between Modern and Classical dance. we created a little dance live for them, with movements they suggested, it was fun. By the end, the whole audience was dancing in their seats…. Literally. It was beautiful to watch.

Ready To Dance Project

I had the chance to work with a group of young people from two youth houses in Stuttgart.  Together we put on a performance in Theaterhaus called Ready To Dance! Here is a cool video explaining the project and process. It was a lot of work, but also a lot of fun.
