Spring Half Term 2018: Into Dance Making
All Step Company dancers were invited to take part in Into Dance Making, a one-week choreographic residency running from 12 to 16 February 2018.
Throughout the week, participants were guided through the creative process by guest choreographers, Zosia Jo and Emma Houston, in order to create a solo or duet. With their support, the choreographers and dancers were challenged to develop their ideas and explore different ways to generate movement while considering how to structure material, make the best use of space; and the relationship between the work and the audience.
Into Dance Making was a supportive environment for the group to analyse and provide constructive feedback to each other. This helped the choreographers and dancers develop new skills in addition to the development of their new work.
The finished pieces will be performed at a range of events including at the Spring Sharings and as part of Step Live 2018.
