Get ready to fly!

Grounded in practices of Contact Improvisation (CI), contemporary dance techniques and primal movement patterns, LAUNCH is a high energy journey into immersive athleticism. Through targeted skill sessions, endurance work, improvisational tools, and team building strategy, this workshop seeks to embolden dancers in the art of immediate decision making at the meeting point of trust, risk and awareness.

   THE FULL DAY LAUNCH EXPERIENCE: 

 

 

Solo Focused Morning:

 

  • Including an opening circle, warm up, gravity games, animal movement, flying/ falling phrase work, and physical listening skills, the morning session introduces students to essential principles for developing fearless dancing. These three hours fortify team trust, allowing for the highly focused training necessary to safely transition students into higher intensities of physically explosive movement later in the day

 

 

Lunchbox Talk With the Artists

 

  • During lunch, students have the opportunity to engage with the teachers in a discussion spanning all things in motion from dreams to travel. By approaching this talk through the lens of personal agency, curiosity, and mindset strategy, we aim to empower the dancers to unlock internal resources for interfacing with dance beyond technique.

 

 

Partner Driven Afternoon:

 

  • Time to fly. Over the course of an action packed afternoon, we will dive into weight sharing, Contact Improvisation foundations, partner centered improvisation tasks, and skill building for trust & height work in the face of momentum. Together, we will take an exciting leap into the world of horizontal flight.

TESTIMONIALS

“Jen and Jacob’s workshop offered my students an experience that they will not forget! Educational yet edgy, daring but technically sound, their energy and expertise challenged students to take risks while motivating them to believe that they can be whatever they wish to become. I would highly recommend this unique day of movement based training for all young dancers who are students of modern and contemporary work.”

 

-Deborah Boyle,  Artistic Director, Ballet Arts Centre of Winchester


 

“Jen created  a place to look forward to each week.  Her teaching attributes made it all reachable without feeling that this could not be achieved or overwhelming. I appreciated her patience, upbeat attitude, knowledge of the craft, explanations, team spirit, compassionate of our needs, fielding all questions and growth [. ..] She was there for us, right from the beginning until our performance evening.”
