Drop in classes operate throughout the term, so don't worry if you've missed a few or nearly all, as we teach unique units, accommodating all participants. Some students have attended the classes for many years, and there are also each term complete beginners, so the classes are geared towards all levels of ability. Students come from art and performance backgrounds or are just non-professionals interested in moving. The age range of students is from age 19 through to age 70+.


Each teacher will have their own way of understanding Butoh and the content will be sometimes markedly different, which is the beauty of this  approach to movement.

Participant quote -


'It was completely wonderful to learn from you, and it was such a rich experience of discovery for me both physically and mentally. The body is such a remarkable resource and I feel the workshop helped me enormously to harness and feel the transformative qualities at hand for creative work. Thank you for such a rich learning experience.'
