Depending on the nature of the project, various models of teaching are available. When teaching as a company, we share an extensive experience of working within education and community settings and pride ourselves on the diverse and innovative dance work created with hundreds of people, young and old, throughout each and every year in the UK and internationally.
Many of our existing sessions are delivered in term time, after school, and school holidays and involve working towards specific learning aims and objectives, work that supports curriculum requirements.
Regular classes can be a fantastic asset to support your work or curriculum and suit your venue or organisation in its dance development.
WORKSHOPS & CLASSES
Marso made his choreographic debuts in 2005 and whilst drawing inspiration from his pioneers (Robert Hylton, Victor Quijada) in hybrid movement genres, he developed his own dance language and methodology.
Based on an experimental and physiological approach to flow and travel, Marso is known for his unique and signature style of movement which often evolves and is inspired from Martial arts, Breakin, Popping, Contemporary Release, Spirals, Yoga and various movement concepts....
He delivers performance, education, and residency work across the dance sector both in the UK and abroad.
"At the heart of my work is education and community. I believe that everyone regardless of age or ability should have access to high quality dance opportunities."

There will be short rep work sequences and we’ll also focus on style and form vs free flow.
Exploration with movement tools to grow and develop your own style/ improv/movement identity.
Composition and musicality tools, repertoire from past creations will be shared and dissected.
Conversations and questions about the culture and where certain techniques may come from or are widely used beyond the scope of social media platforms are encouraged during sessions.
Focus on how to flow between Breakin’ and other movement techniques, refining extensions and “released” versus “dynamic” movement execution.
