Led by choreographer Shannon Gillen and members of VIM VIGOR Dance Company, classes draw on Gillen’s commitment to activating the whole of the performer, from the extremes of virtuosic dance to the fluid awareness of emotion and experience.

Workshops and residencies approach the following themes that reflect Gillen’s perspective on developing whole performers:

  • Activating Awareness
  • Practicing Emotion + Unleashing Reaction
  • Full Throttle Movement + Floorwork
  • Reaching what we call a VIM STATE – where all is possible and interconnected
