Expand your choreographic repertoire and explore different creative processes in this workshop led by dance artists Ufitia Sagapolutele (formerly The Royal Family) and Ezra Williams (formerly Identity Dance Company).

This workshop is aimed at dance teachers and budding choreographers wanting to develop their choreographic expression.

With their extensive experience in dancing and choreographing for hip hop, contemporary and Pasifika dance forms, Ufitia and Ezra will lead participants through the process of creating fusion work.
