Joe's workshop will focus on providing ideas and tools to give dance practitioners and teachers ideas to allow for further access for dancers with different needs in the classical ballet style. The workshop will include themes from the Universal Design of Instruction Technique, a technique first developed by Swiss dance practitioner Jurg Koch . The workshop will focus on deconstructing and translating, a selection of technical exercises and a well known variation from the classical repertory.
