In this workshop we will use the concept of "Loading Docks" to detail partnering options from beginning to advanced. The LDs are areas of the body that can be utilized to offer dynamic and versatile support in weight sharing scenarios, creating lifts and flight with less effort and more freedom. Daniel and Sebastian are both certified Axis Syllabus Teachers with many years of experience in Contact Improvisation, bodywork, fitness training, and dance performance. This will be a fun, accessible, and at times athletic workshop with plenty of anatomical and physics-based considerations to inform healthy and creative dancing.
