Joy's workshop is a practice sourced out of different movement techniques that she has been training in her 30 years experience as a dancer. Her versatile background in traditional, classical, urban and contemporary dance made her develop a unique mix of movement qualities. In joy’s workshop we will practice grounded, dynamic physicality and grooves which strengthens the presence and virtuosity in space. As well as the details in articulating and isolating body parts in connection with musicality and rhythmical patterns. The participants will do exercises and also learn choreographic material with these elements, but they will also have the possibility to engage in their own creativity and individual qualities with improvisational tasks in order to go deeper into different body states and expression within the given context.

As a member of the Akram Khan Company, Joy also teaches Akram Khan Repetory Workshop comissioned by the Company. Check dates and places here
