Dordogne Aerial Dance Atelier

DADA

5th – 11th July 2024

(Next year we are running DADA in July as we have rehearsals happening here in June) 

Will send more info soon

DADA is a holistic event for the global community and ideal for aerial and dance practitioners keen to improve technique. Take time for research and creation and truly focus on your personal and professional development. DADA offers a mix of technique & creative classes and workshops in aerial skills, dance improvisation, yoga and creation in a rich environment where you are immersed and guided in aerial and ground-based movement.

Over the course of six days we stretched, climbed, worked, explored and discovered muscles that we didn’t think we had. Our fuel, eating delicious fresh veggie/vegan food whilst exchanging stories with like-minded people, overlooking the Dordogne countryside. 

As artists, we never stop, our bodies change over the years, we define our craft, we explore and we discover…….Abigail Yeates
