AFD Vancouver at Arts Umbrella 2017 

 

We had an absolute BLAST over this past weekend in Vancouver! Dancers from across the PNW gathered for a two day immersive storytelling experience where we dove into the elements of great performance through THE AFD METHOD.  The AFD Method was developed to help dance artists discover a deeper, more connected, performance that truly engages their audience! Through activating the 5 Pillars -- relaxtion, listening, inner life, circumstance, and character building dancers become more than technicians. They become powerful and very dynamic storytellers! 

Fun fact: this particular workshop was extra special because we began AFD in Vancouver 5 years ago. We've since worked with thousands of dancers to help them find/build their storytelling process.
