Category: workshop, Closes on June 10, 2018

An opportunity to meet with the unique work of Yuval Pick: Morning classes of Practice + research and improvisation. Practice is the method Yuval Pick has been developing for several years. Practice nourishes his dance and dance pieces and it's the daily training of his company.

An intensive 4 days workshop with Yuval Pick
Studio Municipal de la Velette / Rillieux-La-Pape
25th - 28th June > 10h - 18h

Throughout organic, sensorial and playful images we connect to our "imaginary body" awakening and transforming our central axis. We generate the sensation of constant movement in it by using different dynamics and intensities. We use rebounds, rhythms, and successive actions to find a broader range of movement, reinforcing relation between body and gravity.

This work gives access to an "internal spiral" that allows us to create varied trajectories, travel and invest the space. Space becomes a playground. We explore it, modify it, rearrange and invent it.

Suitable for professional dancers, aged 20+
Price: 50 € for 4 days

To apply, please send an email to [email protected] your CV and links to videos or other visual material.
Contact person: Sharon ESKENAZI

Skånes Dansteater (Sweden) Artistic Director

Category: job, Closes on April 26, 2018

Skånes Dansteater is seeking a new CEO and Artistic Director. With a strong artistic vision and a sincere commitment to the development of dance as an artform you will lead Sweden's largest independent dance institution. You program a repertory of high artistic ambition for our acclaimed dance company. Together we create opportunities for audiences to experience dance on our own stage, on Malmö Opera's stage and on tour, nationally and internationally.


We are seeking a CEO and Artistic Director, also serving as managing director. You should have a strong artistic vision, strategic skills and expertise, and a great sense of commitment to the development of dance as an art form, integral within our society.

As CEO/Artistic Director of Skånes Dansteater, your duties include always representing the organization, and working full time to ensure that Skånes Dansteater has the best possible chances to flourish and grow.

As CEO/Artistic Director, you will have full legal and financial responsibility for the entire operation. You should therefore understand the interaction between the owner and the organization, as well as possess familiarity with how the interaction between the players on the Swedish labour market works. It is advantageous to have prior experience of public sector organizations, and you must be able to understand where dance fits in both from the perspective of the performing arts and as part of cultural policy.

You must possess good leadership skills and documented experience as an executive with fundamental knowledge of budgeting and financial management. As CEO/Artistic Director, you will also be directly responsible for our personnel and work environment.

You need to have an in-depth understanding of dance, as well as possess an extensive network in the field, both in Sweden and internationally. As CEO/artistic director, you commission productions for our own stage as well as for regional, national and international tours, and for the Malmö Opera stage.

Although you will not choreograph, having worked as a choreographer is not a disadvantage.

As CEO/Artistic Director, you will need a good understanding of, and confidence in, the skills, expertise and needs of every part of our organization. Our Dialogue project, which works specifically with accessibility and participation, is an important and distinguishing part of Skånes Dansteater's program, and you will be working to ensure its strong continued growth.

A mastery of Swedish is an advantage. Excellent spoken and written English ability is a requirement.

Employment as of July 1, 2019.
Send your application to Vivianne Sahlin, [email protected] no later than April 24, 2018.

Russell Maliphant (UK) Professional Workshop

Category: workshop, Closes on May 25, 2018

Taught by Artistic Director Russell Maliphant, this intensive two-day workshop will be an exploration of ideas and movement that draw on Maliphant's training in bodywork, particularly as a practitioner of the Rolfing method of Structural Integration, and other movement practices including classical ballet, yoga and martial arts as explored in his own choreographic work.

A two day workshop for professional dancers, or those in their final year of training, aged 18+

Saturday 26th - Sunday 27th May 2018 - 10AM - 5PM : £150, The Russell Maliphant Studio, 93A Scrubs Lane, London NW10 6QU

Book Online Here

Maliphant will connect ideas and scientific findings to aesthetics within the physical world of movement. The workshop will introduce the principles and theoretical models of Fascia, Tensegrity, and Structural Integration, which may enhance health, longevity in physical practice, and structural balance. With their inherent rules and qualities, these systems will be explored in relation to line (in posture, sculpture and dance), quality of movement, shape and form.

Maliphant will focus on practical ways to explore fascia and tensegrity in movement, particularly in relationship to gravity, breath and quality of movement. Exercises will look at positional strategies in different movement regimes which could be applied to techniques that participants are already aware of, or which may affect qualities such as shape, flow and dynamics. An emphasis will be given to awareness, proprioception, refinement and mindfulness through releasing 'holding patterns' and cultivating a full body perception with a high level of kinaesthetic acuity.

About Russell Maliphant and Russell Maliphant Company:

Maliphant's work is noted for its sculptural qualities and flow of movement. Though his initial idiom has a foundation in classical dance, he has explored contemporary movement for more than 30 years. He integrates qualities informed by his studies in Tai Chi, yoga, capoeira and contact improvisation in his choreographies, creating his own particular artistic language through the interaction with light and music. He is an experienced practitioner of the Rolfing method of Structural Integration.

Russell Maliphant Company was established in 1996 as the framework for Maliphant to initiate productions and to work with his own ensemble of dancers. Since that time, he has received 2 Olivier awards, 2 South Bank Show awards and 3 Critics' Circle National Dance awards for best modern choreography, amongst many other national and international awards and nominations. Maliphant is an Associate Artist with Sadler's Wells.

Klein Technique Workshop (Spain)

Category: workshop, Closes on July 30, 2018

Intensive Workshop in Klein Technique™, Taught by Susan Klein at Arlequi (Spain) 30 July-3 August 2018

This course will be a Residential Intensive Workshop in Klein Technique™ taught by Susan Klein, founder and developer of Klein Technique™, in the countryside of Spain at the beautiful and magical space of Arlequi. This will be a working vacation in that we will have 20 hours of formal class time and equally important informal time to work, relax and rejuvenate, while focusing on our bodies, feeding our body, mind and spirit.

In class we will focus on a pivotal concept of Klein Technique™, moving from the deepest structural and energetic tissue of the body, the bone. We will explore the anatomy and function of the muscles of deep structural support: the psoas, the hamstrings, the pelvic floor, and the external rotators. These muscles when put into proper use have the ability to change the relationships of the bones to one another and to maximise the transmission of force through the body.

Susan Klein has been developing and teaching Klein Technique™ since 1972, teaching daily classes in New York City at her studio The Susan Klein School of Movement and Dance. Since 1989 she has been traveling throughout the world teaching intensive workshops in Klein Technique™. Klein Technique™ is a result of a serious knee injury and developed out of Susan's personal journey to get well. It serves as a way for people to work through their individual injuries to understand and improve the workings of their bodies, to heal themselves and become better dancers.

Workshop fee: $250 USD

Room and Board: 300-350 Euros (depending on accommodations)

Information and registration: [email protected]

Please note that class size is limited and fills up quickly. Your registration is only complete once registration form and payment is received and confirmed.
