‘The Sound of Movement’ Contemporary Dance and Music Workshop

Contemporary jazz ensemble , ‘The Sound of Movement‘, specialists in merging contemporary jazz and dance, present a wonderful day workshop in which they teach performance, improvisation , composition and choreography.
This will be followed by an evening performance from 7pm – 9pm in which workshop participants will be able to participate.

Join this exciting one day workshop for an enjoyable day of practical hands-on learning. This is a cross art form workshop for both musicians and dancers with an interest in contemporary jazz and contemporary dance, and for those are are interested in enhancing their current skills in creative thinking, collaboration, improvisation, and composition/choreography. This is open to all instruments and dancers.

You can book your place through the ticketing below – this will put you in touch with The Sound of Movement ensemble who will contact you by email to ensure a mixed group of dancers and musicians attend. They can also help advise if you are worried about your current ability or previous experience. We will then arrange online payment at a later date – £50 per adult, with a concession rate £25 for under 25s. Workshop fee includes entry to the evening performance.

Using a plethora of cues, parameters, predetermined music and invitations, The Sound of Movement ensemble have have produced a methodology which allows musicians to be guided and informed in real time by dancers movement, and in turn, dancers to be guided by musicians through what and how they play.

The workshop uses this methodology as the foundation to teach and refine key skills in performance, composition, improvisation, harmony, rhythm, choreography and movement skills.

Inspired by ‘The Sound of Movement’s own work ‘The Sound of The Suite’, the workshop is a collaborative, hands on, performance-based learning experience in which participants will spend time creating a piece of work consisting of a composition and choreography as an ensemble. Not only will participants compose and create their own piece, they will use this as a template to improvise over, taking it in turns to interact with one another, experimenting with self-expression and creativity whilst being introduced to key movement, improvisational and compositional skills from the tutors.

The tutors have been cutting their teeth in the London jazz and dance scenes and whilst having only quite recently graduated from the top conservatoires in the country, they have performed at prestigious venues such as Ronnie Scotts and Sadlers Wells just to name a couple!
