"this is the beginning of something immense, truly powerful ... which enhances our existence and shines a light on the beautiful differences with which we were all built" — 2016 Summer Intensive Student

Our teacher-training course is designed for teachers of dance and experienced artists interested in developing their teaching skills in leading integrated dance in an inclusive and supportive environment.  Drawing on AXIS Dance Company’s creative practice, expertise and methodology in teaching integrated dance, students will explore the following areas:

  • Open door policy - Removing any physical and emotional barriers that prevent people with disabilities from attending class
  • Universal language and communication
  • Exploring a variety of dance techniques, disciplines and approaches to teaching dance
  • Stripping away the myths of integrated dance for a realistic approach to teaching inclusivity
  • To challenge and be challenged - a mutual dialogue of respect between teacher and student
  • Body specificity - Working with different bodies to ensure all are challenged and learning
  • Develop useful tools and skills to put into practice
  • Ensuring best practice in integrated dance
  • Build teachers’ confidence and set up a teachers’ network for future support
  • Q&A time for discussion and feedback

Classes are led by AXIS Dance Company's newly-appointed Artistic Director, Marc Brew, and AXIS Company Dancers.

The following three modules will be explored throughout the week and dance artists can register for 1, 2, or all 3 modules (discounts available for enrolling in multiple modules):

Module 1: Improvisation & Site Specific Work, August 7-9th
Module 2: Choreography & Performance, August 10-12th
