A comprehensive study day for A Level Dance teachers that offers both practical approaches to exploring the technique, style and movement vocabulary as well as an experiential understanding of the creative methodology and choreographic process used by Jasmin Vardimon.

This day will look at the work of Jasmin Vardimon, one of the named practitioners for the optional area of study The independent contemporary dance scene in Britain, 2000-current. The day will provide contextual information on the creation of Vardimon’s work, exploring her influences, working methods, collaborative processes and key stylistic features in order to provide a comprehensive understanding of her work as appropriate to the AQA A-level Dance specification.  Practical work will focus on Pinocchio with teachers learning key repertory and engaging in creative exploration that can be used with their students.
