Have you ever watched a dancer that was technically excellent, but just not *felt* the performance? Or conversely, loved a performance that was technically more than a little "sloppy" ?

There is a lot that performers of all genres can (and should!) learn about stage presence and how to perform. In this workshop, we'll explore movement, posture and mental skills to help you communicate with your audience, no matter what the performance.

Through games, discussion, and a lot of experimentation, you'll come away with tools to help you train the skill of performing.

There will be dance exercises within this workshop, but the focus will not be on technique and this workshop is open to non-dancers. Push yourself out of your comfort zone and towards the sweet spot of growth!

Siobhan has been performing on stage, in restaurants and in site-specific works as a dancer for almost a decade. She has performed across Canada, New Zealand and the United States.

Previously involved in competitive sport (and an accomplished exercise scientist herself), Siobhan has carried over many of the mental skills from racing to her life as a performing dancer, and draws on concepts from contemporary dance and contact improvisation to inform her current passion: belly dance.
