This workshop is specifically designed for professional development for teachers, educators, dance and movement artists and other professionals who have a keen interest in creating access in dance.


The workshop will cover how to create comfortable and inclusive learning environments, how to effectively communicate with participants using inclusive language, and be provided with examples of tasks and ideas that will encourage movement and choreography.


Participants of this workshop will receive tools, building blocks, and creative ideas to enhance their teaching methods. Restless Dance Theatre will introduce creative methodologies that underpin the company’s practice, and provide insights into how Company dancers collaboratively devise work in a creative environment.


This workshop is facilitated by Larissa McGowan (Restless Dance Theatre Associate Artist and Assistant Director of Listen to See) and company dancers of Restless Dance Theatre.
