DADA : 10 – 13 June 2021

The centre de création is excited to bring you our first Dordogne Aerial Dance Atelier (DADA), a holistic event for the global aerial community. DADA is for aerial practitioners keen to improve technique, take time for research and creation, and truly focus on personal and professional development.

Happening over four days 10 – 13 June 2021 with only 25 places available, don’t miss out on this incredible experience in the gorgeous countryside of South West France.

DADA offers a mix of technique & creative workshops and masterclasses in aerial skills, dance, acrobatics, yoga, handstand, creation to production, and rigging in a rich environment where you are immersed in aerial and ground-based movement.

When you’re not participating in a class take advantage of the surroundings, go for sunlit walks in the woodlands, wild swimming in the Dordogne river, or relax by the pool. Hang out with like-minded people and exchange stories over delicious and nutritious group meals. Feel wholesome, creative, and complete.
