Julia Samel

Moving Connections and Brazilian Forró

Inspired by various freestyle movement and partner dance practices, Moving Connections is a chance to move and be moved, to relax into our bodies and to explore connections through simple exercises that support us to meet and connect without words, in a light and embodied way - and with live Violin from Will too!

Everyone is welcome! There's no skills or experience needed - just an open mind, a little curiosity and the willingness to have a go.

Julia holds a safe and gentle space for us to explore connecting in many ways in partners and groups, using rhythms and various techniques she has learnt through her partner dance experience as well as the freedom and creativity that inspires her from other freestyle forms of movement.

Laura Doehler

Contact Improvisaton

"Being mindfully and playfully alive while in direct negotiation with what is around me, weaving the trouble with the beautiful.

To me the virtuosity of dance is a matter of awareness and articulation that manifests because we regularly attend to it and share it. 

It is presence that shapes the future.

Physically and verbally, technique manifests because we  inquire, revisit and affirm. I suspend myself between the experiential and the objective. "



Ecstatic Dance

DJ TAORO aka Richard Batts is the co-founder of Ecstatic Dance UK. He will lead an embodied journey including juicy warmup exercises followed by an epic magic carpet ride of the best music, skilfully mixed to take the dancer deep into their bodies.

Brazilian Zouk

Brazilian Zouk is a Latin dance which began in Brazil during the early 1990s. It originates from a Brazilian dance called Lambada. It's a couple dance where partners look for a deep connection with each other and the music. It's very often danced in close embrace "a hug". Brazilian Zouk characteristic elements are body waves and head movements. There is also lots of improvisation and deep flow which makes it truly magical.


Justin Philpott

Authentic expression and vulnerable connection rely on a foundation of safety and comfort. We are capable of such beautiful authenticity together. Let's build a container that invites and supports intimacy!

Consent 101: Boundaries, Desires and Communication - let's open the Snug Tent together, set the intentions for the space and create a safe container for ourselves and each other to explore creatively, deeply and consensually.

Consent 201: Smoother, Richer Consent  - let's delve into the nuances and enrich our consent practices. What is the best consent modality for us in this moment? How can we communicate better and hold space for others?
