We invite you to join us at MillO Dance Projects - Summer Workshop led by the amazing artist/teacher Mohammadreza Akrami. In this class, he will focus on Flying Low technique, sharing his knowledge and passion from his extensive training with David Zambrano, the founder of Flying Low and Passing Through.
“Flying Low technique focuses mainly on the dancer’s relationship with the floor. The class utilises simple movement patterns that involve breathing, speed and the release of energy throughout the body in order to activate the relationship between the centre and the joints, moving in and out of the ground more efficiently by maintaining a centred state. There is a focus on the skeletal structure that will help improve the dancer’s physical perception and alertness. The class includes partnering work and movement phrases, which explore the primary laws of physics: cohesion and expansion.”

We invite dancers of ages 13-18 to explore movement in relationship to others through awareness, physical contact, and weight sharing. Over the course of 3 days, participants will learn the foundation of Contemporary Partnering and *Kaeja Elevations (KE) technique. We will also engage in a creative process to learn how to apply these techniques in dance works. (In-formal showing at the end of the day 3, invite your family & friends!)
By playing with gravity, counter balance, and momentum, we aim to deconstruct the traditional partnering roles. Everyone will develop skills to fly and support at the end of the workshop.
“Mio and Ge are extraordinary!!! As dancers, performers and teachers of Kaeja Elevations they are exceptionally talented, gifted and understand the technique thoroughly. They are able to share it with clarity, compassion and understanding of everyone's unique physicalities. Mio has assisted me at the Stratford Festival and around the world. Both Mio and Ge are performing in my newest production.” - Allen Kaeja
