Playing with Dance: A Workshop for Traditional Musicians (Cancelled)

Scottish Storytelling Centre
Training Venue

Unfortunately, this workshop has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. 

This workshop for intermediate to advanced musicians explores the
relationships between moving and sounding bodies in the context of
traditional music and dance.

After trying out a little foot music, participants will have the opportunity to play with a dancer one-on-one, fostering conversations around collaboration,
listening, and creative connection.

Participants should be able to play a tune at moderate speed. The class will allow musicians to practice collaborating in a safe, non-competitive environment.

Participants should also come ready to move a little and should wear smooth-soled supportive shoes with a low heel.

With Nic Gareiss, First Footing artist-in-residence at the Traditional Dance Forum of Scotland and the University of Edinburgh.
