What’s it all about?

Teaching techniques and methods passed down to me by master teachers of Vogue and central African dance, and what I’ve learned from years of go-go dancing in the nightclubs of London, NYC and Amsterdam are at the core of this class. Dance Floor 101: Elements of Posture and Play is about learning a few basic principals about moving on a dance floor in a recreational context. Geared towards non-professionals the workshop will include a warm up and various exercises that focus on posture rhythm and having fun. My approach is a balance between a practice of disseminating information versus providing a context for workshop participants to share and polish their own skills and interests as movers.

Who will be teaching?

Self-defined as “a Post-trash, Neo-Queer, Trans-disciplinary artist” Montréal based George Stamos is known for creating performance that is physically dynamic and thought provoking. Over the past fifteen years he has generated work regularly in Montréal and toured across the globe with his creations, and as a dancer with other prominent contemporary choreographers. In his formative years Stamos was a go-go dancer in Toronto, London, Amsterdam and NYC. Articles and reviews written by Stamos have been published online and in print by Canada’s leading dance magazine The Dance Current since 2013.

What should I wear?

Comfortable clothing and whatever shoes you’d wear to a bar or nightclub! Bring a water bottle.
