Together in Motion is a workshop that explores partnering techniques within contemporary dance. We focus on dynamic interactions between two bodies, gradually evolving into group exercises. Our primary aim is to foster confidence in contemporary dancers when engaging in partner and group work. By implementing the fundamental principles of physical interaction, we guide participants on how to touch, move, and collaborate effectively in shared spaces. The workshop is strategically designed to provide an understanding of partnering technique, creating a foundation for advanced elements. By progressively building confidence, participants unlock their playfulness and become more willing to face challenging partner elements.
