Dada Masilo leads participants through a chosen excerpt from her repertoire to experiment with various movement dynamics and touch upon her dynamic choreography’s musicality and elasticity.
As part of the TORQUE dance season, choreographic workshops are offered to advanced dancers seeking a professional career or willing to extend their dance vocabulary.
