FREEFALL SUMMER INTENSIVE 2023 TAKES PLACE AT AMATA IN FALMOUTH ON SATURDAY 5 AND SUNDAY 6 AUGUST 2023. THIS IS A ‘WEEKEND OF DANCE AND MOVEMENT’ FOR PROFESSIONAL DANCERS, GRADUATES AND PRACTITIONERS…
Are you a professional dancer? Do you have a decent amount of experience in movement art but you’re in the market for learning new skills? Or, perhaps, are you a dance graduate or a practitioner who actively trains others? If you are, then you’re in luck because a big weekend dance extravaganza for those with experience rocks up in Falmouth in August 2023.
The Freefall Summer Intensive 2023 is billed as ‘an opportunity for artists and members of the community to train, develop and learn new skills’. They can do this through a ‘series of carefully curated sessions that enhance a dancer’s practice’ over two days of pretty intensive learning, practising and socialising in the south coast town.
The event, which returns to Falmouth after a successful series of workshops last year, takes place on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 August 2023. It all happens at the Academy of Music and Theatre Arts, better known as AMATA, based at Falmouth University’s Penryn campus on Treliever Road, Penryn, which is on the outskirts of Falmouth.
Organisers from Freefall Dance, an artist-led company which is behind the two-day event, say the event brings participants ‘two days of dance and a whole magical host of other things’. You will have to sign up to see what this ‘magical host’ of other things is all about. But expect eight classes over the weekend, with different paces catering for different levels of experience.
Experienced practitioners like Katie Lusby, Kay Crook, Amely Instance, Kuldip Singh-Barmi and the all-female team from Feet Off The Ground Dance will lead the workshops. Organisers also say that that participants should expect ‘Freefall’s signature atmosphere of laughter, passion and openness’. They say ‘our 2023 intensive is a chance to move together, sweat together and recharge those creative batteries’.
The event is for over-18s, however there a few spaces available for 16 to 18-year-olds if they get in early. It’s a wholly independent event and is not funded by any body. So get moving. Get moving Freefall-style this summer. Book your tickets via the ‘website’ link above.
