When? w/c 20 May, Monday, Wednesday - Thursday, 9.30am - 11am
Tuesday’s class will be covered by João Maio
Where? Yorkshire Dance
The classes will utilise different exercises and games, shifting between structured improvisation and taught form so the participants can find freedom within a certain style. The physical language we find will allow us to explore; moving from intention and/or sensation, flow, risk and trust, playing with in/out of balance, and use of weight. Ben is committed to seeking the relationship between mastery of craft and technique with each unique expression of the individuals to find something real in performance.
Ben is a freelance dance performer, choreographer, and teacher. He has performed work by Ransack Dance, Simple Dance Company and Maxine Doyle to name a few. Choreographic works include Ingrid Sørensen & Dancers and Nós, a duet collaborated with Fernanda Prata. As a teacher Ben has been leading various workshops for professional national and international dance companies such as Focus Dance Company and Simple Dance as well as leading classes at Siobhan Davies/Independent Dance, Spinae Dance Festival and Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.
