The BOP Jazz Mission
29 August - 1 September 2022
Every day is a full day of BOP Jazz learning, sharing and being part of a community
The BOP Jazz Mission is to share and pass on the artistic and creative aesthetic of the jazz dance art form, bringing a realistic and relevant appreciation and exploration of creative Jazz dance theatre, techniques, skills and individual expression that are at the heart of the Jazz dance genre. All this and more within the highly energised and nurturing environment, that is BOP Jazz Theatre Company.
The BOP Jazz is aimed to inspire, yet challenge. “Come As You Are” is the mantra, allowing everyone to develop and achieve their own potential as jazz dance performers.
The Daily Schedule includes - Full Jazz technical warm-up and floor exercises. The learning of selected BOP repertoire and creating of jazz dance narratives. Educational Jazz talks & video presentations. The outcome of the week will culminate in a performance sharing of the work learnt, to take place on the afternoon of the last day of the workshop in the Studio. This will be an Open Sharing for friends and family to attend.
The workshop has been made possible through collaboration between Dansalliansen and Danscentrum Syd.
