Most will know that in 2015/16 I took some time off to travel the world, including backpacking through Asia, wintering in New York, living in London, campervanning in Iceland and then backpacking in Asia some more. But part of my trip was also professional development supported by an Arts Tasmania Professional Development Fellowship and while overseas I was lucky enough to take part in a Gaga technique intensive with Bat Sheva, take classes in London, undertake a residency at PAF in France and spend a week with ilDance in Sweden (they’re the ones coming to Melbourne in January)! As a dance artist in Tasmania who is constantly teaching and working with young people, this was the perfect opportunity to recharge and reinspire myself and I’m excited to pass on the knowledge through next year’s programs.
The most exciting part of my time away was my seven week motorcycle camping/road trip through Europe and the UK. Along the way I decided to make a little project as an extension of last year’s Josh’s Morning Dances, and film some dancing on location. Check out the video below!
