Dance Angels Workshop @ IVFDF 2018

Date: February 24, 2018

Location: IVFDF 2018

All practical details are tbc as it is too early for the programme to have come out yet.
 
In this workshop we’ll look at how to dance with new dancers. What makes people feel safe, welcome and like they’re having a great time? What helps people learn how to dance effectively? What helps guide people through dances when they’re still a bit mystified? What makes people stay to the end and come back next week?

Safety Dance Workshop @ IVFDF

Date: February 25, 2018

Location: IVFDF 2018

More practical details will follow when I know them as it is still too early for the festival programme to be finalised.
 
In this workshop we’ll look at how to craft and put into practice a code of conduct for your dance event, to make sure the dancefloor is a safe space. We’ll discuss why you might want to do this, common pitfalls and how to surmount them, and share our thoughts and experiences on this topic. This will be mainly a talking and thinking workshop — especially useful for organisers and callers.
