Healthier Dancer Days 2018

Tue 30 Oct 2018 - Wed 31 Oct 2018
10:00 - 17:30
Individual workshops €15 / full day €30 / two days €55
Open to all

Curated by Áine Stapleton, this year's Healthier Dancer Days will explore self-care, physiotherapy, somatics, inclusivity, and improvisational composition. Participants will engage with cutting-edge techniques, which can be later applied to their individual practices. Sessions will be led by internationally renowned teachers Anya Porter, Michelle Boulé, Mary Nunan, Lisa Fitzpatrick, John Scott and Aoife Mc Grath.

This two-day event will examine often overlooked points of exploration in the area of dance and health. All sessions are suitable for a wide range of teachers, students, performers and dance makers. Workshops will be lead by some of Ireland's most progressive dance artists and theorists, alongside international experts in dance and somatic practices. All teachers have been selected based on their groundbreaking work in the field of dance, as well as their mindful approaches to the sometimes difficult to explore workshop themes.
